''Those who spend their wealth [in Allah 's way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly - they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.'' (Quran 2:274)
£200 – Provide a child living on the streets of Dhaka with nutritious food, healthcare, education, and a safe place to go for a year, helping them to get off the streets.
£100 – Provide clean water, sanitation and improved hygiene to 10 Rohingya refugees, protecting them from disease, infection, and floods.
£70 – Provide a nutritious Ramadan family food parcel to last one month.
Almost a third of Bangladeshis don’t have enough to eat; most of those going hungry right now in Bangladesh are women and children. There are also over a million vulnerable Rohingya refugees still living in Bangladesh, most of them in camps that are overcrowded and neglected.
This Ramadan, give £70 for a food parcel, and we’ll make sure that a Rohingya family, or a vulnerable Bangladeshi family, has enough food for the entire month of Ramadan.
Save a street child
But we’re also working to address other urgent needs in Bangladesh too. A staggering 6.7 million children are out of school in Bangladesh and an estimated 350,000 children living on the streets of Dhaka. Change starts here. Donate £300 to our drop-in centre for street children in Dhaka, and, reap the multiplied rewards of Ramadan while helping a child to have food, education, healthcare and a safe space for the whole year.
Urgent repairs in Rohingya camps
You can also help us to improve conditions for Rohingya families still living the world’s largest refugee settlement in Bangladesh. Refugees in Jamtoli camp are still living in temporary shelters, having fled persecution in Myanmar four years ago. There aren’t enough toilets, and many latrines are overflowing with waste, turning to unhygienic mud when it rains.
They urgently need new latrines and a water system, and access to information about good hygiene so that they can fight the spread of disease before it’s too late. As COVID-19 reached Cox’s Bazar, Medécins Sans Frontières have described the lack of adequate hygiene a ‘ticking time bomb.’
In this holy month, give £100 and help us to rehabilitate and install latrines, construct urgently-needed water systems, and help fight the outbreak of disease in Jamtoli camp.

Why give through Human Appeal?
Human Appeal has been working in Bangladesh for the last 6 years. Last year, we continued to support Rohingya families through hygiene and food security projects, supporting a total of 11,988 people in Myanmar, and 11,830 people in Bangladesh.
When the Rohingya crisis broke out, we immediately responded, providing food, shelter, medical camps and sanitation facilities.
Human Appeal has 30 years of experience in responding to emergencies, and helping communities to recover and rebuild their lives. Wherever we work, when you entrust your charity to us, it’s supported by decades of experience, as well as specialists in protection, child safety, and emergency response.
Please give, and help us to support vulnerable Bangladeshi children and families, as well as brutally marginalized Rohingya families this Ramadan.
Multiply your blessings in the holy month. Change starts here.
