We have received the following appeal from a group of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar, now based in Bangladesh. Already living in desperately poor conditions, they have now suffered further hardship as a result of a devastating fire in their camp.
We guys are comrades of WIN in Balukhali camp, the world biggest refugee camp in the world. We have had our homes burnt to the ground. We cannot sleep after the terrible fire of March 22. There have been fire after fire started by those who do not want us.
We are building the Phoenix team on the ideas of democracy, equality and socialism to bring education and liberation to our peoples who suffered genocide in 2017. Our Phoenix team is already teaching the youth and wanting to do more for our peoples, but we need first to rebuild our homes. We have lost our homes, kitchen utensils, containers, bedding, solar panels, lights and the housing structure: all burnt to ashes. Please help us to rebuild and to work together in the Workers’ International Network to bring war and genocide to an end and to bring closer a time of peace between nations in a socialist future. We appeal for your support with the best. Please send donations to:
