Have questions about our Emergency Response campaign for the Rohingya people?
Below you'll find some FAQs about our Emergency Response campaign for the Rohingya. If you have any more questions, please feel free to chat with our team.
What's happening to the Rohingya?
Treated worse than animals, this dehumanisation of the Rohingya people has become ethnic cleansing in Myanmar. Human rights violations and destruction are rife, with women raped, children abused and villages burned to the ground.
Homes, shops and entire villages are being burned to the ground. The refugees fleeing the violence have crossed the border injured and ill and need urgent medical attention. The camps in Bangladesh do not have sufficient resources to treat the injured or feed the many that haven't eaten in days.
There is a mass exodus from the country as people flee for their lives, facing perilous journeys to do so. Dozens of refugees, including children, are missing and presumed dead, as Rohingya Muslims were forced to risk everything to escape this brutal persecution.
Far from home and afraid for their lives, most are now dependent on aid for all their basic needs – food, water, shelter and medical care.
What is Penny Appeal doing to help the Rohingya people?
Over 680 Rohingyan's have so far benefitted from the construction of these provisions and our partners are working on the development and construction of further household shelters for families in Pauk Taw Township as part of our resettlement project.
Are you working in Burma (Myanmar)?
The situation is constantly changing, while we have been delivering long terms aid within Myanmar we are currently standing by as the government is refusing aid for the Rohingya community. We have teams in neighbouring Bangladesh where we are continuing to distribute aid to those fleeing violence.
How long has Penny Appeal been helping the Rohingya people?
In November 2016 the Rohingya people were in the grip of the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Escalating violence caused the death of at least 86 people, and up to 30,000 people have been forced out of their homes.
Our teams were on the ground in places like Sittwe, Burma, delivering life-saving essential aid to those in the camps. We provided food, hygiene and sanitation items, and clean water. We also rebuilt shelters that were destroyed or damaged.
Please donate today to help the Rohingya refugees who now need your help more than ever.
