With no signs of the Rohingya emergency abating, and a rapidly increasing number of refugees who continue to pour across the border into Myanmar’s neighbouring Bangladesh, the need for support and emergency supplies has never been greater. Penny Appeal teams are on the ground doing what we’ve been doing for more than a decade – responding to Emergencies around the world through a wide variety of projects, including food distributions, water and sanitation, health and nutrition services, and orphan support.

Every year, hundreds and thousands of people benefit from the humanitarian efforts that are Penny Appeal’s programs and campaigns and this year, we are aiming to reach even more with the help and support of the renowned humanitarian and musician Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) who, through his Peace Train Tour, will be performing at a series of concerts in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and New Zealand from which Yusuf will be generously donating a percentage of proceeds to support Penny Appeal Australia’s Rohingya Emergency campaign.

On the topic of the Rohingya Emergency, Yusuf says: “The Rohingyan community need our help urgently, hundreds are being killed; mothers and children, brothers and sisters, thousands are fleeing in desperate search of a safe haven” and that “Being human demands we must do something when we see genocide taking place”.
