ROHINGYA CRISIS IN MYANMAR

JUNE 2019 - SUPPORTING ASYLUM SEEKERS IN PORTLAND

June 16, 2019: Update 6/22: In response to the influx of nearly 300 asylum seekers to Portland in recent days, the Portland Expo has become a temporary shelter to provide food, medical care and resources. These recent asylum seekers started their journey many months ago from several African countries (mostly from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola) and have journeyed through South America, entering through the Southern US Border in San Antonio, TX. 

For updated information:

TO DONATE to the Portland Community Support Fund visit: https://www.portlandmaine.gov/1554/Support-Asylum-Seekers or text the word EXPO to 91999. The City will use any monetary donations received to provide shelter/housing assistance and basic human necessities.

To support Rohingya refugees and speak out against violence:

  1. Sign this letter to the Myanmar State Sangha and government officials, urging them to condemn the violence and support the refugees.

  2. Donate to respected nonprofit organizations working on the ground in the Rohingya refugee camps. A list of reliable organizations can be found here.

  3. Spread the word. Share this information with friends and sangha; share on social media and email.
