The Rohingyan community is in desperate need of your help.
The UN calls the Rohingya community one of the world’s most persecuted minorities.
For four long years, hundreds of thousands of Rohingyan people have been internally displaced within Burma. Living in makeshift camps, they are dependent on aid for all their basic needs – food, water, shelter and medical care.
“And whoever saves one life, it is as if they had saved mankind entirely.”
[Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:32]

R1200 FOOD PACK
Our food packs contain nutritional items like rice, sugar and chick peas; they can support families for an entire month.
R2000 FAMILY ESSENTIALS KIT
Simple things such as hygiene and sanitation items, clothes and blankets can make a big difference to the health of refugees.

Reliable access to a safe source of clean water is vital for survival.
Each shelter can house eight families, providing warmth, security and protection for around 64 people.
Treated worse than animals, the rabid dehumanisation of the Rohingyan people has become an ethnic cleansing of Myanmar. Human rights violations and destruction are rife, with women raped, children abused and villages burned to the ground.
Homes, shops and entire villages are being systematically destroyed. The refugees fleeing the violence are crossing the border injured and ill and need urgent medical attention. The camps in Bangladesh don’t have sufficient resources to treat the injured or feed those who haven’t eaten in days.
The situation is constantly escalating.
We need your urgent help now!
Forced to flee for their lives, these vulnerable people face a perilous journey towards safety. Countless refugees, including children, are missing and presumed dead, as they’re being forced to risk everything to escape the brutal persecution.
Far from home and afraid for their lives, most are now dependent on aid for all their basic needs – food, water, shelter and medical care.
We’ve been working in Burma constructing barracks and shelters for internally displaced people in Say Tha Mar Gyi Camp near Sittwe Township particularly. This area is unfortunately the epicentre of community violence in Arakan – where more than 250,000 civilians have seen food supplies cut off in the latest round of violence.
Over 680 Rohingyans thus far have benefited from the construction of these provisions, and our partners are working on the development and construction of further household shelters for families in Pauk Taw Township as part of our resettlement project.
We are also responding to the crisis by way of providing essential food and non perishable items in Myanmar.
The situation is constantly changing, and whilst we have been delivering long-term aid within Myanmar, we are currently being forced to stand by as the Government is refusing to allow aid through for the Rohingyan community. We have teams in neighbouring Bangladesh where we are distributing as much aid as possible to those fleeing the violence.
Please donate today to help the Rohingyan refugees who now need your help more than ever.
