Help Flood Victims Rebuild Their Homes

Hello,

Floods and landslides in July 2021 killed 6 Rohingya refugees and left thousands homeless in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh. Floods expose the extreme vulnerability of Rohingya refugees as climate change combined with massive cuts in Aid wreak havoc on their lives. Fires earlier this year also left thousands homeless, poor quality water, insanitary conditions, poverty limited access to education mean life can be unbearable for Rohingya refugees - some of whom are currently on hunger strike in protest at their lack of human rights. They feel themselves to be "the forgotten people". All this during the pandemic. Over the last year our project has been gathering accounts of their lives which are available on our website of you'd like more information. Since 27 July 2021 we have been receiving heart breaking WhatsApp texts, photos and videos from refugee friends in Kutupalong Rohinga refugee camp of the devastation caused by the floods - you can see that on the video gallery on our website. If you wish to help flood victims build their homes, please consider donating to this GoFundMe. Our Covid Chronicles project is working directly and closely with flood victims. Every penny donated goes directly to homeless. We are aiming to raise £1000 by end of September which would make a small but significant contribution to help

Thank you
