Target: Barack Obama
Demand: Send supplies to Indonesia to help care for sick, weak refugees.
Hundreds of migrants were found on boats off the coast of Indonesia recently and were taken to shore to be given healthcare and be processed as immigrants to Indonesia.
The first group that was found numbed 547 and the second group, traveling in several boats, numbered about 400. Many of them are children. They are believed to have fled Myanmar because of the recent killing of Muslims in the country.
Officials say the people had been drifting at sea for days, most likely without food and water. They were taken to shore and put in shelters. Although the local government is providing food and water, supplies are running low.
Tell President Obama to send crucial supplies.
Dear President Obama,
About 900 refugees were rescued off the coast of Indonesia recently having drifted at sea for several days without food or water. The refugees, which authorities believe fled Myanmar due to the ethnic cleansing of Muslims, are sick and weak.
The local government has given the refugees shelter, food and water, but supplies are running low and they need help. We the undersigned implore you to send food and water to help take care of these people.
