Our selected cause for this month - January 2018 is the Rohingya crisis
Via the Charity PLAN INTERNATIONAL (Aust.) –
one of the most sudden and intense humanitarian crisis’ in history. Since late August 2017, over 800,000 Rohingya people have fled violence in the Rakhine State in Myanmar. They’ve fled to neighbouring Bangladesh – a country ill-equipped
to cope. More than 60% are women and children, and more people are arriving every day. Sadly, it’s estimated that 500,000 Rohingya have either witnessed or suffered sexual violence.
Families with young children have trekked through difficult terrain in monsoon weather. Children are traumatised, and many are orphaned or alone after being separated from their parents in the chaos.
