A team of 34 Penny Appeal fundraisers are heading out to the Himalayas this December, for a grueling 12 day trek to Mount Everest Basecamp, reaching over 18,000ft. Their goal is to raise £250,000 to support the catastrophic Rohingya Refugee Crisis.


One year ago, violent attacks on the Rohingya community in Myanmar left thousands dead, and hundreds of thousands fleeing to Bangladesh in search of safety.

There are now almost 1 million Rohingya refugees living in the extremely densely populated area of Coxs Bazaar on the coast of Bangladesh.

This is the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world. One year on, there are still Rohingya refugee families arriving into Bangladesh every single day, fleeing persecution.

Thanks to your ongoing support, Penny Appeal has been working on the ground since the crisis began, to meet some of the most pressing needs of thousands of families.

And whoever saves one life, it is as if they had saved mankind entirely. [Surah Al-Maidah 5:32]

Donate now to help the Rohingya refugees.


Our food packs contain nutritional items like pasta, rice, sugar and chick peas; they can support families for an entire month.


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.

£2,800 SHELTER

Each shelter can house eight families, providing warmth, security and protection for around 64 people
