Rohingya Refugee Blanket Appeal

More than half of the estimated 700,000 Rohingya who have escaped Myanmar’s military crackdown live in makeshift sites without proper shelter, clean drinking water and sanitation.

They are living in very basic and squalid conditions. Their homes are made of bamboo and walls are made of very thin plastic (in some cases as thin as bin liners). With the winter fast approaching, the nights are very cold with temperatures reaching approximately 1 – 2 degrees.

Refugees like 20-year-old Fahmida Begam cue for hours at distribution centres at camps everyday waiting for support to arrive. She stays in a shanty that she says is too small to accommodate the six members of her family. Due to the rain, they could not sleep last night as the tarpaulin leaked, making the sandy floor too cold.

Crisis Aid will be distributing blankets to the Rohingya refugees throughout the winter. It costs just £6 per blanket. Please donate as many blankets as possible to bring a glimmer of hope to refugees like Fahmida and her family.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Crisis Aid 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 Crisis Aid 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 Crisis Aid 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.
