FMSI raises €5,000 euros for Rohingya children in two months



Collaborating with Caritas Bangladesh

15/02/2018: Bangladesh

FMSI raised €5,000 euros in two months for Caritas Bangladesh, who is looking after Rohingya children in refugee camps.

With the help of the Marist Brothers in Bangladesh, the money FMSI raised in its campaign from November to January has reached Caritas Bangladesh who will in turn use it to continue aiding the Rohingya people who are fleeing from Myanmar.

According to Caritas Bangladesh, nearly 860,000 people who have fled military persecution in Myanmar are living on bare earth floors under tarpaulins.

Caritas is providing food support and household items for 70,000 refugees in their camps. Its future plans include ongoing food assistance, emergency shelter, living supplies, water and sanitation, child protection, social services, and potentially design and infrastructure support for new camps.

Pope Francis, who is very much aware of the crisis, visited Myanmar from Nov. 27 – 30 and then Bangladesh from Nov. 30 – Dec. 2.

FMSI is also raising funding for other projects in countries including Syria, Lebanon, South Sudan, Ghana, Tanzania, Malawi and Mexico.

Its latest campaign, “#meneprendocura” (“#Itakecare”), aims to raise money for basic teaching material, meals and to help build a well in Malawi.
