Rohingya Emergency Appeal

Since 2017, over 800,000 Rohingya refugees have been fleeing from violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State and settling in camps like Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh.

The continuing crisis has also prompted Rohingya to risk their lives crossing the ocean, in an attempt to reach safety.

In September 2020, nearly 300 Rohingya have come ashore in Aceh, on the northern tip of Indonesia’s Sumatra island.

The group is reportedly the largest to land in Indonesia since 2015; when thousands of Rohingya attempted the risky crossing.

In June, about 100 Rohingya, mostly women and children, arrived in the same area after what they described as a perilous four-month sea journey.

In response, we launched our Rohingya Emergency Appeal. So far, we and our local partners on the ground have provided food, water and hygiene kits.

Your incredible support has enabled us to provide emergency relief to those in desperate need. Donate to our Rohingya Emergency appeal now.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

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