In Myanmar, atrocities against Rohingya Muslims are being committed; many children have been beheaded and people burnt alive after inflammatory government statements.
Already, more than 100,000 civilians have been displaced in Rakhine, while another 2,000 Muslims are trapped on the Myanmar-Bangladesh border, which was closed by the Bangladeshi government. Another 400,000 live in Bangladeshi camps, although Dhaka only recognizes a small portion as refugees. Between 2,000 and 3,000 Muslims were killed in Myanmar’s Rakhine state just last week.
The U.N. documented mass gang rape, killings, including that of babies and children, brutal beatings and disappearances.
Aid workers say the Rohingya crisis at the Bangladesh-Myanmar border is now one of the biggest humanitarian crises in the world.
My name is Sukhrab Karimov, I am a business owner and a citizen of the United States of America, living in Los Angeles, California.
When I found out about this horrifying situation in Myanmar, I couldn’t believe that this is actually happening in the 21st-century civilized world.
I decided to do whatever I can to support the families that went through this massacre who now have no idea how to survive. And that’s when I thought of creating the relief fund.
The funds that this campaign is going to raise will be taken to Bangladesh to help the refugee families from Myanmar, who are currently have no place to live, no medical aid, in order to provide medical help along with other necessary things for these people.
Once the fund is close to $70,000, I will be able to determine the further actions in regards to delivering the funds to the country of Bangladesh and use the money directly to provide help and work with the local hospitals and housing facilities that are taking care of the refugees.
The humanitarian budget will be used to the best of our knowledge, where the money should go to, where it will be needed the most at that time. I will be personally responsible for the fund's withdrawals under my name.
We must come together and collectively help the victims in any way, medically and whatever else way possible with damages or lost.
Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, will be greatly appreciated.
