Over 600,000 Rohingya have been pushed out of their homes in Myanmar and into overcrowded refugee camps in neighbouring Bangladesh.

Tired and malnourished, Rohingya refugees continue to struggle with little access to food and medical care and face growing water, sanitation and hygiene challenges.

Thousands of new arrivals are flooding into the camps, making the aid that is available more and more scarce.

This Giving Tuesday, give the gift of relief to Rohingya refugees. Join PWS&D on Tuesday, November 28 as we raise money to provide life-saving food rations, emergency non-food items, temporary shelter, sanitation services and psychosocial assistance.

PWS&D is supporting a response through members at Canadian Foodgrains Bank and ACT Alliance that is helping Rohingya refugees meet their basic needs for survival.

Make This Giving Tuesday Count

Tuesday, November 28 is the last day the Canadian government will match donations 1:1 towards the Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund.

Make a donation! Please mark donation as “Rohingya Crisis.”
