All fundraising money will go towards our Emergency Rohingya appeal.
Over 600,000 Rohingyan refugees have fled across the border from Myanmar to Bangladesh, leaving their burning homes behind. Considered the ‘world’s most persecuted minority’, many Rohingyan's now live in the makeshift refugee camps of Bangladesh; they desperately need your help.
Penny Appeal is on the ground in Bangladesh delivering food, medical aid, shelter and water solutions to thousands of Rohingya Muslims, but the need is great - and more assistance is urgently required.
