LaunchGood: Help End Rohingya Genocide In Burma

As of now,  according to the UN estimates, 300,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh. Human Right Watch reports that villages on a 100-kilometer stretch were set on fire. Killing is still ongoing.

The UN is being blocked by Burma to provide water, food and medicine to another 400,000 Rohingyas sheltering in forests and mountains trying to get to Bangladesh. 

It is a genocide. They are going for a final solution. Never again is happening again. 

It is our belief that God will ask us individually about what we did to help, not what others did or did not. That said, my request is to set aside 10 minutes today for our Rohingya brothers and sisters.

“Whoso does a good deed does it for himself good. Whoso does an evil deed does himself evil. Then to your Lord you will be returned” Quran 45:15.
