Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund

 The influx of Rohingya refugees into Bangladesh since August 25th, 2017, the majority being women and children has triggered a humanitarian emergency of such a scale that concerted international action is urgently required.

In order to address what the United Nations is calling the “fastest growing humanitarian and refugee crisis”, Canada launched the Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund on October 31, 2017.

For every eligible donation made by individuals to registered Canadian charities between August 25 and November 28, 2017, the Government of Canada will contribute an equivalent amount to the Myanmar Crisis Relief Fund. 

The following ACGC member charities are currently accepting donations for the crisis in Myanmar.
