Help Get the Rohingya to Safety

Help Get the Rohingya to Safety

We may never save more lives than right now.

Thousands of desperate Rohingya are stranded on one side of the river between Burma and Bangladesh. They’ve fled horrific terror, are within sight of safety, but have no money to hire fishing boats to cross, and the army is closing in.

As soon as the Avaaz team heard about this we wired money to local partners who have started hiring boats -- hundreds of people have been saved already!

But now we can help move even more, and get food, supplies, and shelter to the few competent organisations helping desperate families that make it to the other side.

This is real, and if we act fast, your donation could actually save a human life. It costs just $10 to ferry one child or mother across the river to safety. Avaaz will not keep a cent of this money -- and we'll send all donors an update in days on what happens and how money has been spent.
