Extreme violence in Myanmar has forced Rohingya families to flee the state. Homes and fields have been set on fire, family members have been killed and the intensity continues.
More than 700,000 Rohingya people have fled their homes and have poured into Bangladesh to escape persecution. Over 1,400 children have arrived by themselves after witnessing the deaths of their parents and loved ones. The influx of refugees is expected to continue and the small region of Bangladesh does not have the capacity to support them.
As the monsoon season approaches, families are in urgent need of life-saving food assistance, water, sanitation, shelter, health and support.
ERDO, in partnership with Pentecostal Assemblies of Bangladesh (PAOB) will be providing life-saving food and clean water to Rohingya families who have fled to Bangladesh.
How can you help?
Your gift of:
- $100 will feed one refugee family with rice, lentils, oil, salt and sugar for five months.
- $55 will provide one refugee family with an emergency kit to help survive monsoon season. Kit includes: flashlights for security, replacement clothing/shoes, hygiene kits and shelter needs.
- $1,169 will provide clean water through the installation of a deep tube-well within the refugee camps.
Through our partnership with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, your donation towards food will be matched 4 times. That means, your donation of $100, becomes $500 of life-saving food.
Your gifts are greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your generosity.
