About Us

The Swedish Rohingya Association founded in 2013, registered in Stockholm - Sweden with the registration No.802493-8428. SRA is a politically, culturally and religiously disengaged non-profit organization with aim to follow and make awareness about the situation for the Myanmar's Rohingya minority Muslim group in Arakan/Rakhine and in the diaspora. These people have been called by the UN "the world's most persecuted people" and the situation for them has long been very desperate. They have lost their citizenship due to the 1982 citizenship law which is not compatible by the law of international citizenship standards. Now Rohingya are considered by the legal authorities in Myanmar as illegal immigrants while they are living in the country for centuries.
