    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    I will be taking part in East London Mosque's annual 5km charity run in order to raise emergency funds for our brothers and sisters who are suffering in Myanmar (Burma).

    Described as the "world's most persecuted minority", the Rohingya are a mostly Muslim minority in the Buddhist nation of Myanmar and have long experienced persecution since the late 1940's. They have lived in Myanmar, also known as Burma, for generations but are denied citizenship and said to be illegal immigrants.

    In a situation of clear ethnic cleansing, entire villages have been burned down and an astonishing 370,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh in the last month alone. The UN secretary general himself has said that not enough aid is getting through to the Rohingyas who have fled to Bangladesh with women and children arriving hungry and malnourished.

    My words will not do justice to express the vicious cycle of suffering & oppression faced by the innocent Rohingya Community. The lack of media coverage by the mainstream media is outrageous.

    Human Appeal's work in the Rakhine state is centred around delivering food parcels, survival kits and temporary shelters. I have set a target of £500 in order to deliver this all and it will only be possible through your help.

    As human beings, it is our duty to help these people.

    This is our chance to help these people and provide them with the basic necessities they so desperately need. Please donate generously and help me reach my target of £500.
