Help Restore Lost Childhoods

 

Dear Friend,

 

Rojeya* has seen things that no child should see. As you may have read, she experienced first hand the worst of the violence perpetrated against her community, the Rohingya people. Today, I’m asking you to send a gift to our appeal as a matter of urgency. If you have already given thank you, and please continue to pray.

 

Countless Rohingya children, like Rojeya, have witnessed their loved ones get killed. Military forces destroyed 392 Rohingya villages. Refugees in Bangladesh reported continuing abuses, including killings and sexual violence.

 

It’s a desperate situation, but you can make a difference.

 

£75

 

could provide five children with three sessions a week at the child-friendly spaces within the Cox Bazar camp. In these spaces, children take part in informal maths and language lessons, as well as play therapy and art-based learning.

 

Give now <https://tearfund.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=cd19eb0b2a74af14054950f15&id=6354d3f397&e=b67d6b82a4>

 

 

My heart breaks when I think about Rojeya. She watched as her childhood home was burnt down. Along with her family, she ran for her life, but her younger brothers didn’t make it. They were killed in front of her, one thrown into the fire as their village was set alight.

 

After the horrors that so many children like Rojeya have endured, your support could help them to just be children again.

 

Please give what you can quickly. There’s still time.

 

Thank you. The whole team and I are so thankful for your generosity, which brings comfort to people like Rojeya.

 

Yours in Christ,
