Story

Me (Abdul Hoque) and Mehedi Islam are travelling to the borders of Bangladesh to provide aid and support to the Rohingya

OUR TARGET: £20,000

  • 20 new shelters (houses a family of 10) = £375 each
  • 100 food packs (for a family for a whole month) = £50 each
  • 300 medical aid (for those injured or wounded) = £25 each

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

  1. The Rohingya Muslims are facing ethnic cleansing
    and state sanctioned genocide
  2. They are being hunted, tortured, shot and
    killed.
  3. Their children and babies are chopped up and
    burned alive in front of them
  4. Their women are violated, gang raped and bodies
    mutilated.
  5. Their villages, homes, schools, businesses and
    mosques burnt to the ground
  6. They are chased from their homes with machete
    yielding gangs
  7. The Burmese army are shooting at those trying to
    escape
  8. Land mines are tactically placed along the barbed
    wire borders blowing up anyone attempting to leave
  9. Many died from drowning after escaping with
    overflowing tacky boats which capsize

HOW MANY PEOPLE NEED OUR HELP?

More than 300,000+ have escaped Burma and seeking refuge in the borders of Bangladesh.
They are injured, tired, exhausted and hungry with no food and no shelter.

WHO IS HELPING THEM?

The United Nations alongs with major NGOs have been prevented from entering and providing basic food, water and medical aid to Rohingya civilians

We will be on the ground, at the borders of Bangladesh, along with others, assisting those who arrive. We will be personally overseeing
the purchase of aid from any money that you donate and will be physically helping people with our own hands. So if you want to see your donations being used whilst we are there helping the Rohingya then donate now before we leave.


WHAT HELP/ASSISTANCE DO THEY NEED?
They immediately require the following things;

  • FOOD 
    (£50 feeds a family for a moth) – some haven’t eaten for days
  • SHELTER
    (£375 builds a new home for a family) – They need a roof over their heads to
    protect them from the weather conditions and constant rain
  • MEDICAL AID
    (£25 provides aid for 1 person) – Many are wounded from violent attacks or injuries sustained during their journey to safety

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?

You can help us to reach our target of providing 20 shelters/homes for 20 families (£375 each), providing monthly food packs for 100 families (£50 each) or providing medical assistance to 300 wounded/injured individuals (£25 each).

Please try and donate fixed amounts only for any of these 3
categories, rather than any other amount as we are there only for a short period of time and it would be easier to oversee and give aid when you give exact amounts for these things, rather than partial.

You are more than welcome to donate for more than one of
these things and as many of the same item if you wish inshaAllah – obviously, the more you give, the greater the support (not to mention the more reward for you).

[For any other amounts, you can donate directly to the
Lonely Orphans website at www.lonelyorphans.org]


WHEN ARE WE GOING TO BE IN BANGLADESH?

We are leaving for Bangladesh to aid the Rohingya from Sunday 17th September and will be there until the beginning of October distributing your aid.

If you want us to personally provide your aid with our own hands then you will need to donate whilst we are still there.

Please join me to raise as much money as we can to help the Rohingya. Let's not allow them to be forgotten. JazakAllah khair

May Allah accept it all from us and from you. ameen
