HOPE FOR BANGLADESH - 2017 CHRISTMAS APPEAL

Bangladesh is a nation in great need. This Christmas, you can be a blessing to this nation by supporting our Christmas Appeal, which is providing hope and practical assistance to some of the poorest people in the world.

In the past year alone, Bangladesh has experienced catastrophic floods, destroying homes and livelihoods, and a refugee crisis that is threatening to engulf the tiny and already overpopulated nation. On top of this, the poorest children and women are facing a future without hope because they cannot afford an education.

Will you be a blessing to this nation in great need this Christmas?

  • Prior to the current refugee crisis, there were an estimated 1 million Rohingya living in Myanmar
  • They have been described by the UN as one of the most persecuted minorities in the world
  • The Rohingya population were denied citizenship under the 1982 Myanmar nationality Law
  • They are fleeing as a result of mass killings, torture, rape and forcible transfers (Amnesty International report)
