A spokesperson for Shazan’s said: “With all the love, support and donations from our family and friends we raised £7,738.75 to support HRF in helping the Rohingya refugees and South Asian Flood Victims. We aimed to provide the victims with food packs, hygiene kits, medical supplies and emergency shelter for the displaced families.”
The Rohingya refugees are a stateless minority from the Rakhine State, Myanmar. An estimated one million people have been denied citizenship and are suffering as they have no access to food or water and have been made homeless.
HRF is working on the ground within refugee camps in Bangladesh distributing emergency aid to those most vulnerable. Through its Emergency Appeal, HRF has provided food, water, shelter and medical care among other necessities to alleviate the suffering.
