CWS Rohingya Refugee Appeal

PCANZ’s Global Mission encourages your support for the CWS Rohingya Refugee Appeal. The PCANZ has a mission partnership with the Presbyterian Church of Myanmar, called the Ricebowl Mission. Through this partnership, awareness of, and support for, the people of Myanmar has grown and become widespread throughout the PCANZ. The situation of the Rohingya people in Myanmar is a humanitarian crisis resulting from decades of struggle in the complex web of Myanmar's multi-ethnic, multi-religious society, exacerbated by years of brutal military rule. The members of the Presbyterian Church of Myanmar are almost exclusively of the Chin ethnic group, one of many ethnic minorities within this country. Due to the nature of social and political life in Myanmar, they will largely have little awareness of, and no involvement in the Rohingya crisis which is taking place in a remote area of Myanmar called the Rakhine State, near the Bangladesh border. This crisis is still unfolding but it is clear the Rohingya people need the involvement of the international community. Find out more and donate to the CWS appeal here.
