Emergency Appeal Launched

The Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF) is appealing for help to get urgently needed aid to Rohingya people left homeless, hungry, frightened and in desperate need following ongoing violence in Myanmar (Burma).

 

The charity is sending £50,000 to its sister agency Caritas Bangladesh which is already helping over 160,000 Rohingya people who have fled over the border.

The speed and scale of people flooding over the border has resulted in a humanitarian crisis. Many families fled with very few possessions and are now entirely reliant on humanitarian assistance. They are extremely vulnerable, traumatised and living in extremely difficult conditions.

A massive and immediate increase in humanitarian assistance is needed to save lives.

SCIAF is an active part of the global Caritas network of Catholic international aid and development organisations and has worked in Myanmar (Burma) for many years. There is an immediate need to get food and other items such as pots, pans, soap, jerry cans and shelter to the many thousands of people in need.

SCIAF’s Director Alistair Dutton said:

“The Rohingya people are going through hell and desperately need our help. More than 480,000 people – roughly the population of Edinburgh – have fled for their lives into Bangladesh. Many have experienced horrific violence and the destruction of their homes and villages. They are traumatised, vulnerable and desperately need our help.

“We’re working closely with Caritas Bangladesh who have already provided food to over 160,000 Rohingya people. But much more help is needed.

“The eyes of the world are on the Rohingya. Having heard their cries, we must respond. I urge everyone to pray for the Rohingya people and give whatever they can to help them through this terrible situation.”

Please donate to SCIAF’s Rohingya Emergency Appeal online at www.sciaf.org.uk or calling 0141 354 5555.
