Day 15: Rohingya Muslim Refugees and COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has made conditions even worse for some Rohingya Muslim refugees. In April 2020, 277 Rohingya refugees were stranded in the Bay of Bengal in flimsy boats. This week they were rescued by the Bangladesh navy, and they are currently being quarantined for two weeks on a island that is prone to flooding. Read the news story here.
Pray for safety, shelter, food, clean water, and medical care for these refugees — and all refugees.
