Rohingya Refugee Relief

Family and Friends! Many of you know my birthday is coming up on November 21st and Thanksgiving  soon after on the 23rd. I focus most of the work I do on conscious change, and different friends have inspired me over the past year to dedicate my birthday and Thanksgiving to do just that. 

I'm traveling to Bangladesh on November 19th to bring relief to the Rohingya refugees who are fleeing ethnic cleansing in their home country of Myanmar (Burma).

Rohingyas are often called the most persecuted minority in the world, unable to claim citizenship in a country that refuses to recognize them. The atrocities inflicted on the Rohingyas at the hands of the Myanmar government are staggering. Over the past week, Amnesty International and the international news media have reported stories of beatings, villages set on fire, rape, and murder.

The ethnic cleansing of Myanmar’s Rohingya population over the last two months has been the most severe. Stranded, stateless, and unwanted. 600,000 people have been forced out of Rakhine state by the Myanmar army and Buddhist extremists. This means 1.3 million Rohingya exist in limbo without a place to call “my country.” Myanmar’s army makes one thing clear to every Rohingya they aren’t raping, murdering, burning, or shooting: “Get out and don’t come back.” So they flee from their villages until they reach Bangladesh.
The government of Bangladesh is overwhelmed by the refugee crisis. The refugees arrive having eaten little if anything in days, and with just the clothes on their backs. Children are especially vulnerable to human trafficking, servitude, and abuse, as many have become separated from their families. Once they arrive in the  tent cities (without any sanitation), the daily struggle continues to access clean water and food.

 For the next 10 days, I will be on the ground in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh - working with local NGOs to deliver vital aid to these refugees.

Together, we can make a difference. I am personally covering the cost of my airfare and hotels. This means that 100% of your donation goes directly towards filling the urgent need of food, clean drinking water, and other critical supplies.

100% of your donation goes directly to refugees.

Here is exactly where your donation will go:

$10 = food for 5 days for 1 person

$50 = builds a bamboo and tarp shelter for 3 families to stay dry from disease

$100 =   Provide medicine to treat 10 people who are sick or injured

$200=  Deliver food packs to feed 5 displaced families for a month

I will be on the ground transporting all of this daily and working with different local charity organizations to bring relief. I'll be sending daily updates  with photos and stories to show where the donations are being spent.

During this time of thanks and celebration of my birth, we can come together to make a difference! No donation is too small - everything counts.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all.
