The plight of the Rohingan people in Myanmar is horrible. More than 600,000 persecuted Rohingan muslims have fled over the Bangladesh border. The Australian Red Cross has volunteer staff attending the refugee centre, providing safe drinking water, food and toilets.
Tawonga Red Cross branch is raising funds for the Red Cross Myanmar Crisis Appeal. The Australian Government will match dollar-for-dollar all money donated by December 9th (next Saturday). Tawonga Branch will forward every dollar we receive to the Australian Red Cross appeal on Thursday.
If you are able to make a donation to this appeal, please do one of the following, as soon as possible:
1. Go into the Mt Beauty Community Bank in Hollonds St and make a donation into the Tawonga Red Cross account. Ask the teller to record a reference of ‘Myanmar’.
2. Do an online transfer into the Tawonga Red Cross account BSB 633 000, account 156 761 835, with the reference ‘Myanmar’
3. Go directly to the Red Cross appeal: https://www.redcross.org.au/myanmar-crisis-appeal and donate by credit card.
Thank-you to the very generous people who gave me donations at yesterday’s U3A lunch. I have your official receipts which I will give you soon.
