From travelling to the farthest reaches of the world to debuting a new song on the Arc De Triomphe, there is never a dull moment when DJ Snake livestreams. This week, the French producer’s livestreams have been just as riveting, but in a very different way.
Jérôme Jarre has brought a group of influencers and advocates, including DJ Snake, to Bangladesh where they are spreading awareness from the largest refugee camp in the world. The refugee camp is full of Rohingyas, a minority Muslim population native to Myanmar. This group is unable to claim citizenship anywhere because the Myanmar government refuses to recognize them. The atrocities inflicted on the Rohingyas at the hands of the Myanmar government are staggering, and according media reports, include stories of beatings, villages set on fire, rape, and murder.
HUMANITY. IT’S NOW OR NEVER!
WE NEED ALL OF YOU!

DJ Snake is bravely and outwardly exposing the devastation and magnitude of the refugee crises. The hashtag #LoveArmyForRohingya has been circulating the internet thanks to this initiative, and the goal of this campaign is to reach $1 million dollars in donations on the Love Army for Rohingya GoFundMe page. 100% of all donations go directly towards filling the urgent need of food, clean drinking water, and other critical supplies for these refugees.

After one day of broadcasting from the camps, $950,000 has already been raised for the cause. Every dollar counts, and if the second day of broadcast is as successful as the first, this initiative will have raised an incredible amount of support for the dire situation in Bangladesh. Consider supporting the cause, and kudos to DJ Snake for using his platform to spread the message.
