An earnest request to help to Empower Psycho-social Resilience and Reinforcement of Rohingya Refugee Women and Girls (who are tortured brutally) staying in Bangladesh

You know about one million Rohingya have taken shelter in Bangladesh. They have been driven away from their ancestral home in a planned way. Now everybody acknowledge that they have been the victim of a genocide carried out by the Myanmar government forces, Buddhist extremists, and Rakhine ethnic group. Majority of the refugees are women and children (70%) who are the victim of violent repression. Many of them have to see the killings of their dear ones in their own eyes. Many young girls and women are the victims of gang raped and brutal physical torture. There is no way to delete the awful memory, but we can soften there sufferings through empowering psycho-social resilience.

To address this problem Nowzuwan has been implementing a program for this target group titled “Psycho-social Resilience and Reinforcement Project for Rohingya Refugee Women in Bangladesh” with the funding support of Asian Dignity Initiative, a South Korean donor for a small number (1128) of target group in Camp 14 (Hakimpara).

Now, it has taken an initiative to expand this project (thousands of women and girls need this support) and has started a fundraising campaign through Global Giving (a USA based crowd-funding platform) to meet up the project cost from November 27, 2018.

The following is our campaign page link- http://goto.gg/36810

We strongly believe that you can do a lot for this ill-fated Rohingya women and girls through making a donation (as per your capacity). Please remember, no amount is small for charity cause! It will be our great pleasure to see that you have been with these homeless, stateless Rohingya women and girls with your philanthropic zeal.
