Be a lifeline for Rohingya and Bangladeshi families
“Whoever saves the life of one, it is as if he saved the whole of mankind” (Qur’an 5:32)
£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 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, and as cases of COVID-19 peak higher than ever, families are facing deep insecurity.
Give £70 for a food parcel, and we’ll make sure that a Rohingya family, or a vulnerable Bangladeshi family, has enough food to last an entire month.
Save a street child
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. Donate £200 to our drop-in centre for street children in Dhaka, and help a child to have food, education, healthcare and a safe space for a 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, as well as the most vulnerable in the host communities.
Since 2020, some 20,000 Rohingya refugees have been relocated to a silt island in the Bay of Bengal, amid conditions that humanitarian experts and envoys have criticized as unprotected from cyclones.
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 during this monsoon season.
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.’
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.
