Every dollar donated by Canadians in response to the Rohingya refugee crisis until November 28, 2017 will be matched by the Canadian government through its new Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund.
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 600,000 Rohingya people have fled their homes and have poured into Bangladesh over the last four weeks 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.
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 to Rohingya families who have fled to Bangladesh.
Project goal is to:
- Provide food (rice, lentils, oil, salt, sugar) to over 8,000 households over the next six months
Thanks to a special match through our partnership with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, your donation will be matched 4 times.
**Until November 28th, all donations to the Rohingya crisis will be matched by the Canadian government through the Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund. That means when you give through ERDO, your donation of $100, can become $600.
Your gifts are greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your generosity.
