In addition to safety from physical violence, one immediate need of the Rohingya is medical care. The Myanmar government expelled Doctors without Borders for serving the Rohingya. One way we can let them know that we care and that we are watching is to write to the President of Myanmar to request that he allow Doctors without Borders to return to provide medical care. Here is the link to submit a letter.
I wrote on this link and received an automated acknowledgement, but no actual response. Perhaps if we flood the this site they will get the message.

Also please consider signing this petition to President Obama to change course and stand up for the Rohingya of Burma. Perhaps he’s learning from the results of his inaction in Syria as Clinton did when it was too late in Rwanda. It’s not too late in Burma.
