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.
Ethnic violence has broken out in Myanmar according to a report by the Humanitarian Aid agencies, thousands of Rohingya Muslims living in Myanmar have been killed and more than 90,000 have been left homeless since the violence began. Around 1,336 homes belonging to the Rohingya Muslims were burnt during the unrest, and other organizations say the number could be as high as 6,000. According to a report the Rohingyas are one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. The Muslims in Burma are restricted from travel, education, require government permission to marry and are subjected to modern day slavery through forced labour. As a result of the systematic discrimination they have endured, many Rohingya Muslims have been forced to migrate to Bangladesh and Malaysia; currently 300,000 Rohingya Muslims live in Bangladesh and 24,000 in Malaysia.
I have set up this page so we can all get helping the Rohingya Muslims suffering in Burma and Bangladesh. Help us alleviate the pain of Burmese Muslims by donating today. We are very fortunate to have everyrhing.
