The Rohingya refugees are not forgotten. Since the exodus in 2016, they have learnt to adapt to rebuild a livelihood. However, now they face an even more significant threat from the global pandemic. According to UNHCR, it is the largest refugee camp globally that supports more than 742,000 Rohingyans. 

Together with our partners, our teams worked to address the urgent needs of the refugees in Cox Bazaar. Supply of clean water, building shelters, delivering food and providing medical care services.

PROVIDING CLEAN WATER SUPPLY

Thousand of families who settled in the refugee settlement often get sick from consuming unfiltered water. Despite safe drinking water and sanitation being recognized as basic human rights, three out of 10 people do not have access to it - according to the UN World Water Report.

Since 2017, we have implemented the water truck system and installed 20 Water Hand Pumps to supply clean drinking water daily. There are plans to provide continuously annually and to expand further, benefiting more people.

MEDICAL CAMP 

Responding to the myriad of health issues, the medical camp in Balukhali was built in 2017 with support from our international partners as the first clinic in the area.

With a medical camp set up, we aim to provide free primary healthcare services to Rohingya refugees in Cox Bazar.  The staff are medically trained to use the medical equipment with medical supplies. 

In 2019, a group of healthcare workers from Singapore volunteered to open a Medical clinic. They set up a foundation system and procedures in consultation with locally appointed doctors in the camp. While at it, they contributed their energy to our humanitarian works for a week. 

shelters

Since the exodus in 2017, the population has grown further, causing the settlement to be overcrowded. Together with our international partners, our team is working closely to ensure each family, especially women and children, has a place to seek safety. Up to date, we have built 240 shelters.
