The Rohingya are the most persecuted people in the world. For years we and other organizations have helped refugees fleeing persecution in other countries while Buddhist mobs and the military continue to persecute Muslims. With the recent return and uptick of problems we’re working with volunteers in Myanmar to help the Rohingya most efficiently and directly.
NOTE: Many have asked how to donate large amounts or via bank accounts. Donations can be made with NO fees using your bank card at bit.ly/ussunnah (available only in certain countries, other countries can use paypal.me/ussunnah).
Help the Rohingya Directly!
Myanmar has denied aid ships in the past. When allowed in the ships had to deliver aid to Yangon (instead of Sittwe where the Rohingya mainly are) where the government would then confiscate the food and give it to Buddhist rather than the intended Rohingya. (See: goo.gl/1v2W2g)
This is why the us-Sunnah Foundation is now working directly with aid workers and partners on-site in Myanmar and the border areas to deliver aid directly to the hands of the Rohingya refugees. With our 100% donation policy this means every dollar donated will go directly to our volunteers in Myanmar, after credit card and transfer fees, and then be spent directly on the Rohingya – with any aid being directly handed to them.
Our aid workers and partners are working on ground in Rakhine, Burma as well as the border areas, just outside the areas of conflict, and are helping the affected families by providing them with food and immediate relief. We are in constant communication with the on ground team in Burma. Below are some of the images of relief work going on thanks to our generous donors who came forward to help.
Helping with us-Sunnah
The us-Sunnah Foundation (501c3) has helped thousands of Rohingya refugees which sought refuge in Aceh, Indonesia since 2015 (See: goo.gl/hvyrFG) along with our partners.
With the recent return and uptick of violence once again we are working with our partners in the region to provide direct relief. As an international nonprofit registered in the US as well as Indonesia we are uniquely positioned to both fundraise and directly aid the Rohingya throughout the region.
How You Can Make a Difference!
For many of us we feel a great sense of helplessness when we constantly hear the news of our brothers and sisters being killed, beheaded, raped, and more by Buddhist mobs and the Myanmar military. Though you may be far away you can help!
After making sincere dua’ and raising awareness, the best way you can help is with your generous donation which will go directly to the Rohingya. If we all sacrifice and give as much as we are able this will go far. Next, even for those who can’t donate, we can make this appeal go viral and Allah will reward each of us for the donations of those who we referred, inshaa’ Allah.
So please donate AND share this campaign far and wide!Donate Now
