Just £100 will provide HOT FOOD for 200 people!
More than 1.2 million Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar since October. As a stateless Muslim minority group in Myanmar, they have faced discrimination, violence and extreme poverty for decades.
It is a fight to survive for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. In cramped and unhygienic camps thousands of refugees face disease, hunger and uncertainty about the future.
Although the Rohingya have lived in Myanmar for centuries, they were stripped of their citizenship in 1982 effectively rendering them stateless. Their movement is tightly restricted by the authorities.
More than 1.2 million Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar since October when the military launched a crackdown against what it called Rohingya insurgents after an attack on an army post. Since then hundreds of Rohingya civilians have been killed. The United Nations has accused Myanmar’s military of committing crimes against humanity.
There is an urgent need to ensure that displaced people and other civilians affected by the violence are protected and are given safe access to humanitarian assistance including food, water, shelter, and health services.
Distribution of Cooked Food Packs in this distressed situation for the Rohingya (for the targeted beneficiaries) who are staying currently in Bangladesh has been influenced a lot. This supports is very much valuable in their present condition.The overall purpose of the project is to aid food security and feed the malnourished.
Here are some of the benefits:
- To distribute the Cooked Food Packs to the extreme poor Rohingya Refugees who cannot arrange of their own accord.
- To reduce suffering of the targeted people.
- To ensure means of living in some ways during the project/program’s time frame.
- The weekly menu is varied with foods such as meat, lentils, potatoes, rice and curry to mention a few. So to give them a balanced diet.
- Main beneficiaries are children, women and the elderly. A lot of whom are orphans and widows.
Our plan is to continue this project for as long as we can as many people don’t have access to cooked food in the camps as some have no family as many children are orphans and don’t have a family environment where a someone can cook them a meal.
Preparation for Distribution
We have planned to visit the specific area where we desire to distribute the packages. We organized the volunteers for the area and trained up them about distribution methodology. We have purchased the materials from the local market.
We have invited spot tender and got the parties acceptable who have charged the lowest price of supplying the materials. Purchase orders to the suppliers are given before supplying of materials. Our volunteer group has packed to ready for distribution.

Impact & Sustainability
The Rohingya Emergency Relief will address the most urgent and basic needs of the Rohingya refugees in cox bazar. These are the people who have not received any assistance and are living spontaneous settlements, which are quickly expanding. These are the people who are staying in open air, suffering from exhaustion, sickness and hunger. Most of them walked 50/60 kilometers for up to six days and are in dire need of food, water and protection.
With your help, we have already fed nearly 180,000 HOT MEALS over a 90 period. However the funds are now running out. This is a vital lifeline for many Rohingya children and for as little as £1 you can provide 2 hot meals.
All donations, however little, will go a long way in providing relief to the desperate Rohingya people. You can make a difference to their lives by supporting this cause and donating generously, THANK YOU.
