    Story

    I am going Bangladesh 19 November 2017 to help the displaced families. I do not work for any charity or have political affiliation. I want to meet the refugees give them message of hope from us all that we are with you in this difficult time. I am supporting my travel and accommodation entirely myself. My family and friends are fund raising for me. My focus of funding will be vulnerable women with children. Helping people who are in desperate need of artificial limbs, medical supplies and food packages. I am humbly requesting you all please donate for this cause, I will make sure your donations will reach the neediest.

    We all know about the humanitarian crisis in Myanmar (Burma). Rohingya lived in Burma for centuries. Burmese government refuse to recognise Rohingya as its citizens, they even excluded them from 2014 census refusing to recognise them as people. Rohingya are forced to live in hard to reach parts of jungles, with no roads, no hospitals, and no infrastructure. Rohingya are persecuted by the army and local population because of their ethnic and religious background. The persecution has reach to the level that, The United Nations described the military offensive in Rakhine (area where Rohingya live) as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”. Amnesty International says the Myanmar military has killed hundreds of Rohingya and raped and abused Rohingya women and girls.

    These helpless people are fleeing the Army and local population in the neighbouring country Bangladesh. This is an exodus on an unimaginable scale. 537,000 refugees who have arrived since August 58% are children, while 60% of the adults are women. According to UN report Burmese army burnt almost 288 villages. Rohingya are fleeing army, landmines, famine and elements into Bangladesh. Bangladesh government is keeping these refugees into makeshift camps. Bangladesh is an under developing country unable to support all refugees. Refugees are not allowed to go out of camps, hundreds of refugees arrive every day escaping death. It is impossible to help the refugees without international humanitarian action.

    The need for aid is overwhelming.
