Helping Hand for Relief and Development

The recent surge in violence against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar has caused global concern with the rising death toll since the crisis began in 2012. Rohingyas have fled the region of Rakhine with hopes of finding safety in the neighboring areas of Myanmar, as well as the countries of Bangladesh, Thailand, and Indonesia.

How You Can Help:

HHRD in DFW will be hosting an event in partnership with the Valley Ranch Islamic Center on Saturday October 28th to help raise awareness and funds for the surge of refugees entering Bangladesh. Purchase your tickets today and help save a life!

Situation on The Ground:

This is a silent genocide where the UN calls the treatment of Rohingyas 'textbook ethnic cleansing.' The country of Myanmar (Burma) is in Southeast Asia and has been marked by one of the longest running civil wars between ethnic groups. More importantly, 1.1 million Rohingya Muslims living in the Burmese State of Rakhine have faced apartheid like conditions since 1942.

How Donations Help:

As of mid-September, nearly 400,000 of our Rohingya brothers and sisters have fled and sought refuge in Bangladesh, and HHRD is on the ground assisting in every way possible. The following are the most urgent needed items which your donation will help purchase:

  • - Tents/Shelter
  • - Food/Water
  • - Blankets
  • - Baby Food
  • - Hygiene Kits
  • - Latrines
  • - Flashlights
  • - Cooking Stoves
  • - Insect Repellant
  • - And much moreā€¦

Donate now and attend our event on October 28th with Sh. Omar Suleiman, Imam Siraj Wahhaj, and Sh. Yaser Birjas at the Four Points by Sheraton in Irving, as we shed more light on this issue.
