Help the displaced Rohingya people in Myanmar (formerly Burma)
According to the United Nations there are about 800,000 Rohingya in Myanmar that are considered to be among the most persecuted people in the world. Deadly strife between Buddhists and Muslims in Rohingya has displaced over 90,000 people. Tens of thousands of families were made homeless when their dwellings were burned to the ground.
Myanmar does not recognize the Rohingya as one of its ethnic groups and many in the country consider them to be illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. Amnesty International recently said the Rohingya are increasingly being hit with targeted attacks that have included killings, rape and physical abuse.
Life for Relief and Development is working to send emergency food such as rice, flour, lentils, beans, tomato paste, sugar, tea and relief items which include tents, clothing, blankets, hygiene kits, mosquito nets and kitchen utensils to the displaced people in Myanmar.
Food Basket to feed a family - $75
Tents - $300
Relief items for one family - $100
(or any other amount)
This crisis continues and it may get worse. The Rohingya people need your help, their lives have been turned upside-down and their needs are growing daily.
