Hi, this is Sebas, Juanita, Juan,  Omar,  DJ Snake,  Grand JD, Jhon Rachid, Yvick,  Seb & Jerome. 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.



Our initial plan was to donate 100% of the donation directly to the Rohingya refugees as cash.  But it was illegal to do so. So we had to adjust our plan and decided to support projects in the camps instead, that were hiring as many Rohingyas as possible. This way the refugees could still get some cash as "daily paiement" for their work.

All the details on the charities and projects we chose, as well as all the financial details given by those charities,
are available on the final reporting of the mission.

Thank you everyone!
