Cyclone and monsoon season threatens the lives of Rohingya refugees who escaped violence in Myanmar — but you can keep them safe. Your gift will provide tools and materials that will strengthen shelters to withstand the season’s extreme weather.
Reinforced plastic tarps are not only inexpensive, lightweight and waterproof — when extreme weather hits, they are lifesaving. Your gift will provide tarps to reinforce a refugee family’s shelter against torrential rains and wind.
