In Myanmar the humanitarian situation has taken a dramatic turn for the worse.
As of 3 September 2017 an estimated 87,000 people have reportedly crossed from Myanmar to Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. As many as 14,000 have crossed the border in the last 24 hours alone, joining thousands more who have recently fled ongoing violence.
Access for aid agencies is limited but some charities are on the ground, providing emergency help to thousands. Many of those escaping the violence are from the Rohingya, an ethnic minority of around 1.1m Muslims. Refugees in Bangladesh urgently need water, food, sanitation and shelter.
The money raised will go those charities working in the area of Myanmar. We now need your help more than ever before.
Donate now to help those who have lost everything.
Your generous donation will help deliver:
Life-saving medicine and medical treatment
Clean water and emergency food
Physical and psychological therapy
This is a humanitarian crisis.

About the fundraiser
An ordinary human being trying to do her bit in helping those less fortunate in the world. I can't physically be there in person for them but the least I can do is try to raise as much as I can to help aid them in these difficult times.
