Voice of the oppressed
The Rohingya, who numbered more than 1.5 million in Myanmar at the start of 2017, are one of the many ethnic minorities in the country. Rohingya Muslims represent the largest percentage of Muslims in Myanmar, with the majority living in Rakhine state.
They have their own language and culture and say they are descendants of Arab traders and other groups who have been in the region for generations.
But the government of Myanmar, a predominantly Buddhist country, denies the Rohingya citizenship and even excluded them from the 2014 census, refusing to recognise them as a people.
The plight of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people is said to be the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis.
Risking death by sea or on foot, more than half a million have fled the destruction of their homes and persecution in the northern Rakhine province of Myanmar (Burma) for neighbouring Bangladesh since August 2017.
The United Nations described the military offensive in Rakhine, which provoked the exodus, as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.
Cap Foundation is working with the refugees, delivering life-saving emergency aid, food, shelter, Fresh Water, shower, sanitation and hygiene kits to those displaced by internal conflict and inter-communal violence. We’ve rebuilt children’s school and women healthcare through innovative clinic, which allow us to reach isolated communities.
Nearly 27,500 pregnant women in The Cox’s Bazar Refugee Camps.
Cap Foundation operate on a 100% donation policy and have built a clinic during February 2018. In recent months they have managed to deliver more then 85 new born babies from the antenatal clinic.
Cap Foundation is known for our quality service delivery in all projects helping the destitute in different places.
The clinic requires £3,500 each month and we are currently struggling to to pay for docs, midwife, nurses, home visitors, admin team and medicine. We must find a way to keep the Antenatal centre going or be a failure to our pregnant women in the refugee camp to bring their new born to this word.
We are desperately pleading to you for support to these abandoned women in Rohingya to give birth, security and dignity to their lives.
May God reward you for your contributions.
