     Title: Development and Peace - Caritas Canada launches an emergency call to help Rohingya refugees

Development and Peace – Caritas Canada is responding in Bangladesh at the border area with Myanmar in the district of Cox’s Bazar. It is supporting a food distribution program with its partner Caritas Bangladesh.

The Canadian government announced on October 31st, 2017 that it will match admissible donations made before November 28th to an eligible Canadian charitable organization, which includes Development and Peace.  To donate go to the Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund.

Development and Peace - Caritas Canada is launching an emergency appeal to help Rohingya communities who have been forced to flee Myanmar and seek refuge in Bangladesh and is calling upon the generosity of all Canadians for support. The urgency with which refugees had to flee in the face of abuses by the army and the breadth of their displacement has exacerbated the vulnerability of thousands of children, women, and men who now have little to no access to basic necessities and services.
