Who We Are
Arakan Rohingya Organisation UK (AROUK), formerly known as Bradford Rohingya Community UK (BRCUK) is one of the leading international non-profit and charitable organisations which established on 18th of May 2009 by a group of dedicated Rohingya people who came in the UK through Home Office Gateway Protection Programme in 2008. Our members have first-hand experience of persecution themselves or their family in Myanmar and experience of refugee life in Bangladesh.
Rohingya people have been persecuted over many decades in Myanmar by the state security forces. In 2017, the world has witnessed thousands of Rohingya refugees fleeing conflict and risking their lives to travel to foreign countries in search of safety and a better life. As a non-profit organisation, AROUK is committed to providing humanitarian support, community development and emergency aids in some of the world most deprived areas.
We are supported through a vast network of volunteers from a variety of professional backgrounds, AROUK organises projects locally and internationally, which promote health & well-being, and education of vulnerable displaced Rohingya refugees. In doing this, AROUK raises awareness of the Rohingya crisis and inspire others to support our projects. Feedback and reports collected from our projects aim to give a truthful insight into the struggle and challenges of many Rohingya refugees as well as the impact of our continued support to tackle the protracted Rohingya crisis.
As part of our advocacy, we communicate and collaborate with other national or international organisations that already involved in tackling the Rohingya crisis. We are also open to partnership with different stakeholders to transform the lives of Rohingya people.
Our primary mission is to help people in need and enable them to get access to meaningful education in some of the world most deprived areas.
A place where everyone has the same rights and access to basic need.
