Kicking off Support for Rohingya people!

Bangladesh

It is one of the most densely populated and at the same time the poorest countries in the world. There are more than one thousand inhabitants here per one square kilometer. The country’s population is almost 150 million. In the neighboring Myanmar, since mid-2017, thousands of the Rohingya people have lost their lives, their villages have been burned down, and the survivors approached the border with Bangladesh. Within several months, more than 750 refugees settled in the border area.

Overview:
  • The UN has been calling persecution of the Rohingya an ethnic cleansing
  • The Rohingya are the most persecuted ethnic group today
  • the world’s largest refugee camp, home to approximately 920,000 Rohingya, is located near the city of Cox’s Bazar
  • 55% of the camp residents are children

60

The situation at the camp is dire: thousands of injured, helpless people are camped outside, hoping for help. Hundreds of people are still missing. There is no time to lose. We have to act fast!

The most important thing now is to provide the fire victims with essential supplies to help them survive the next few days. Just before the tragedy, we sent our regular monthly transfer to support the daycare’s operations. Over $7,000 would be spent on meals, educational aids and facility maintenance. After the fire, we decided to redirect the funds towards items urgently needed: food, clothes, articles of personal hygiene, and kitchen equipment. We also purchased tarps and mats so that victims could set up provisional shelters. We are trying to get these supplies to families of the children from our daycare first.

These people have, once again, lost it all. Forced to leave everything behind when fleeing ethnic cleansing in Burma, they have now been robbed of the very little they have acquired in the four years of living in the closed camp. They need our help!

The fundraiser for rebuilding our center and helping families restore their shelters is still ongoing on our website. Thanks to the enthusiasm and generosity with which you responded to our calls for help, we’ve managed to reach half of our goal in just two days! We are incredibly grateful for your support. Let’s keep the momentum going! We encourage you to share the news with your friends and closed ones. Doing so will allow us to continue our work in this torn-apart region.
