Save lives in a time of major crisis in Myanmar

Rohingya families have been forced from their homes and are in crisis.

Give before November 28, 2017 and your gift will accomplish twice as much! The Government of Canada is matching donations given to help Rohingya families displaced by violence in Myanmar and will match your donation 100%.

Rohingya Crisis Update
  • More than 600,000 people have fled their homes to escape the violence that descended on their communities.
  • Women and children make up 70% of the 600,000 people displaced.
  • People are deeply traumatized by the unspeakable violence they have survived.
  • Most were forced to flee their homes within minutes, or risk being maimed or killed.
  • All are now homeless and have nothing.
HOPE International Development Agency is increasing its response.

We've been working with local partners in Myanmar for decades and are responding by providing additional emergency support, such as health care, basic sanitation, and other urgently needed relief items.

To help meet the overwhelming need, 100% of your donation today will be sent directly to our work in Myanmar.
