Rohingya in Malaysia
In recent years, many Rohingya have been forced to flee their homes in Myanmar and have scattered throughout South East Asia. Many have made Malaysia their new home.
Malaysia does not legally recognise Refugee Status making it difficult for refugees to access services such as education and healthcare as well as making it difficult for them to join the workforce legally.
despite the challenges however, UNHCR and local partners, work hard to ensure refugees can access essential services and livelihood projects and fight for refugees to attain legal status in their host country.
