Supporting Rohingya refugees via Children on the Edge

We are pleased to announce that our International Committee has agreed to donate £500 to Children on the Edge to help the Rohingya refugees.

We have all seen the desperate plight of the Rohingya refugees, especially that of young children who are currently living in large refugee camps in Bangladesh.

Our club has been looking into charities that we feel can make a real difference to their lives. Thanks to the Times Christmas Appeal our Club learned about a charity called Children on the Edge, who are helping to provide education for Rohingya refugee children in Bangladesh. Children on the Edge has developed a unique model of delivering primary education to the Rohingya children living in the camps and estimates that it helps around 2,700 children receive primary education.
