Join with Avaaz to help stop the Rohingya community and their children from being murdered

 

What’s happening?

Right now in Burma, the Rohingya community is being hunted down by rampaging bands of soldiers hellbent on murder. 800,000 people are dead and they are even beheading tiny children. But here’s the craziest thing — the military behind this massacre is supported by countries like Britain, Germany and Italy! Burma’s generals have spent years building these alliances.

Avaaz’s efforts

Avaaz members directly lobbied the British Foreign Minister, and the UK has just announced it will stop supporting the Burmese military.

Avaaz empowers millions of people from all walks of life to take action on pressing global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to conflict and climate change. The Avaaz community campaigns in 15 languages, served by a core team on 6 continents and thousands of volunteers. They take action — signing petitions, funding media campaigns and direct actions, emailing, calling and lobbying governments, and organizing “offline” protests and events — to ensure that the views and values of the world’s people inform the decisions that affect us all.

How you can help

Let’s demand our governments end their support until the slaughter is stopped. Let’s turn up the heat, pushing Italy, Germany, Austria and more to do the same. Help end the Rohingya massacre — sign now!

“We are horrified by the brutal crackdown on the Rohingya people by Burma’s military. We call for an immediate suspension of financial and training support for Burma’s military and government until the violence against this community is stopped, those responsible brought to justice, and the government begins a process to end the stateless limbo and religious scapegoating of these persecuted people.”

The Wishing Well foundation

The Wishing Well was established in 2010 to offer children in out-of-home care, such as foster care and residential care, a range of healing and treatment options usually not accessible as a free therapy in mainstream health.

The Wishing Well raises funds to enable children and young people to access developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments shown to be highly effective in dealing with severe trauma and neglect. These therapies respond to the unique needs of each child and young person.

The Wishing Well is a not-for-profit incorporated charity organisation, established and managed by people seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care and their families. The Wishing Well recognises the importance of the act of giving. We recognise the significance of the participation of community members and all donations are most appreciated.

The Wishing Well operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment.

Support the Wishing Well

The Wishing Well uses its funds to help children in need access all manners of developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments. The Wishing Well takes referrals for any child/young person in out-of-home care in NSW.  Applications are assessed by qualified personnel and on a case-by-case basis.  The decision to fund an application is affected by the following:

  • Funding availability
  • The support the child/young person has to access the proposed therapies
  • The capacity and willingness of the Carer Household to support the child/young person
  • Assessment, which recommends and supports the proposed therapy as relevant to meeting the particular needs of the child/young person

The Wishing Well gratefully receives donations, funding and resources through bequests, corporate partnerships, fundraising events, grants, online donations and other fund raising activities. Money donated to The Wishing Well enables traumatised children access to healing therapies. Please see our website for more information:
