ROHINGYA MUSLIMS APPEAL

The situation for the Rohingya Muslims is worsening by the day.

Over 300,000 people, with 80% estimated to be women and children, have crossed the border into Bangladesh.

WF-Aid is now working with partners who are on the borders of Bangladesh and Myanmar, and are receiving tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees each day.

People are arriving with no belongings and are in desperate need of immediate medical attention, after suffering from violence in their homeland. Most have also undertaken a gruelling journey to reach safety, which has left them hungry, in despair and in need of shelter.

You can help these vulnerable people by donating today.  Members in Africa can channel their donations through the Africa Federation Office or their local Jamaats.
