PURPOSE

The RDF is to provide Rohingya victims of Genocide with food, water, medicine and financial support. The RDF Foundation’s Mission Humanitarian Program [MHP] aims to provide aids and nutrition to Rohingyas, particularly to children as possible as soonest. But this will be just a small step forward. There are about 800’000 Rohingya in Bangladesh and 500,000 in Arakan most of them are deprived and malnourished. Not by choice but because of sheer bad luck of Genocide. The RDF will try to support every single Rohingya and to empower Rohingya Community.
