Urgent Appeal: Rohingya Refugee Camp Fire

On 7th January part of the giant Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh caught fire.

Around a thousand homes were destroyed in the fire, leaving around 5,000 people homeless. Most have lost almost everything. Again.

The world’s largest refugee camp hosts over one million refugees who have fled genocide in Myanmar. But the government of Bangladesh doesn’t want them there, and forces Rohingya refugees to live in temporary shelters in cramped conditions surrounded by high fences. It isn’t safe, and fires are a constant danger.

International governments, who failed to take action to prevent genocide, have savagely cut aid to the refugees. The British government alone has cut aid by around 80%.

Rohingya refugees have had their rations cut. Half the refugees are children.

Your donation will help pay for rebuilding homes and replacing lost clothing and basic essentials.

Advance Myanmar will make sure your donation reaches local community organisations in the camps who are helping the families impacted by the fire.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Advance Myanmar to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Advance Myanmar we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Advance Myanmar to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Advance Myanmar will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Advance Myanmar receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
