Support Rohingya families and Bangladeshi children

''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 – Support a Bangladeshi street child

£100 – Essential hygiene for Rohingya refugees

£70 – Provide a 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.

Help us to support vulnerable families in this critical time, so that they don’t have to choose between having food to eat and staying safe from COVID-19.

Give £70 for a food parcel, and we’ll make sure that a Rohingya family, or a vulnerable Bangladeshi family, has enough food for a month.

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 13 per cent of children are forced to work to survive, often for up to 64 hours per week.

Support our drop-in centre for street children in Dhaka, and help a child to have food, education, healthcare and a safe space for the whole year.

You can also help us to improve conditions for Rohingya families still living the world’s largest refugee settlement in Bangladesh, as well as the most vulnerable in the host communities.

£100 will help us to rehabilitate and install latrines, construct urgently-needed water systems, and help fight the outbreak of disease in Jamtoli camp.

During these trying times, we can feel helpless, but there are so many ways that you can support the most vulnerable, without even leaving your home. Donate, and help us to change lives.

Why give through Human Appeal?

We starting working in Bangladesh in 2016, supporting vulnerable local families. When the Rohingya crisis began a year later, we immediately responded, providing food, shelter, medical camps and sanitation facilities.

Human Appeal has 29 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.

During these trying times, it’s easy to feel like our actions are insignificant, but this is when our help – charity, good deeds, and unity – are more important than ever.

Please give, and help us to support vulnerable Bangladesh children and families, as well as brutally marginalized Rohingya families this Ramadan.

Multiply your blessings in the holy month. Now is the time to give.

Human Appeal's work in Myanmar and Bangladesh

  • Provided blankets, mosquito nets, reduced carbon ovens and briquettes to 6,000 refugees in the Jamtola, Hakimpara, Nambalia and Kutupalong camps.

Though our response to the Myanmar crisis is ongoing and we are closely monitoring the situation in Bangladesh's refugee camps, we need your support to save even more lives. Donate to our Rohingya Emergency Appeal

Sara preparing food

Sara's Story

Tragically, last year, Sara’s community was destroyed by the military. Her relatives were killed, young girls were kidnapped and homes were burnt to the ground.

It took 12 days for Sara to reach the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh, what happened to her en route was horrific. As she waited for the ferry, a group of men with guns ordered Sara to hand over her gold necklace. They snatched it from her then assaulted her. Sara doesn’t remember what happened next, only that she was set free at around 6pm. She was bleeding. Her nails were broken. Her hair had been pulled out. Her legs were so badly injured that she was unable to walk properly.

As she had been separated from her family, Sara thought she would never survive, but another family took her to the hospital where she collapsed and went into a coma. She later found out she had been raped.

Sara now has constant nightmares. Life in the refugee camp is hell. She is without adequate food or shelter. She is in pain even when she breathes. She cries all the time and longs to be reunited with her family.

Change lives for the better in Bangladesh.
