We are seeking for funds to buy foods, clothing and medicine for the Rohingya refugees in the Bangladesh Border. A group of us will go to Tekhnaf, Rakhine State on September 29th, 2017 to help the suffering Rohingya people. We will provide a clear breakdown on the distribution of the fund. Please donate and spread the word. It’s the least we can do for such inhumane situation.
Who are We:
We are a group of friends from Dhaka, Bangladesh and abroad, trying to help the Rohingya refugees by providing dry foods, medicine, water purifying tablets and clothes to ease some of their sufferings. I, Asif Chowdhury, am representing the GoFundMe initiative to collect donations for the cause until September 20th, 2017. At that point, I will withdraw the money to my bank account and wire transfer it to Dhaka, Bangladesh for the relief effort. The following bank account will recieve the money for the relief funds:
Bank name # Dutch Bangla Bank limited
Account Name # Aminul Hasan Faisal
Account no # 19810164173
Our team in Dhaka, Bangladesh lead by Aminul Hasan Faisal is also raising local donations and logistical effort to make this a successful endeavor and ensure we procure necessary and right supplies for the Rohingya refugees.
With the GoFundMe donation, we plan to buy the following supplies for the refugees in Chittagong, Bangladesh:
* 300 tent to give shelter to approximately 4000 people
* 10,000 saline for sick people
* 300 pcs of mosquito nets for children
* 300 torch lights/lanterns for women with children to walk safely at night
* Make 5-10 tube well for community drinking
The local donation those are being raised in Dhaka will be used to procure dry food, water and other medicine.
Our team will reach Tekhaf on September 29th, 2017 to distribute the supplies and also supervise the tube well implementations for the suffering refugees. We are planning on going facebook live (depending on connectivity) and post pictures of the relief effort (please join our facebook page, link at the bottom). We will also make proper assessment on what is of dire supplies and logistical needs for future relief efforts.
Please donate and spread the word. It’s the least we can do for such inhumane situation…
