You’ve probably heard about the violence and humanitarian crisis in Myanmar. In the past few weeks, more than half a million people have fled the country to Bangladesh, where they urgently need food, shelter and medical care.

So we’re pleased to support a new appeal by our partners at the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) to help those fleeing Myanmar. You can read more about it online.

We know that DEC only appeals for money when they know they can help, and there are the necessary resources and partnerships on the ground. So when they ask, we’re happy to help spread the word.

To donate:

  • Text ‘GIFT’ to 70000 to give £5 (Texts are free but donations will be added to the bill and must have bill payer’s permission. Any income received after 30 April 2018 will go to the next appeal. Customer Service number 01204 770 822. Reg Charity No. 1062638.)
  • Or to donate any other amount, go to their website

Please share these details, and give whatever you can.

If you want to fundraise for this appeal, please contact charitypartnership@coop.co.uk
