Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh has become host to the Rohingya community; an ethnic group that has faced severe persecution in Myanmar for decades. When the hostility against them worsened, many fled their home country for neighbouring Bangladesh.
In 2017, the UN announced that the attacks against the Rohingya community were a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”. Even as refugees in Bangladesh, they continue to struggle as they lack adequate food, water, and shelter.
Estimates suggest that 80,000 Rohingya children under the age of 5 need treatment for acute malnutrition due to hunger.
What We Do
Today, we provide 9 schools with daily meals. For Rohingya refugee children, school provides a familiar routine that can help them recover from trauma. Our meals are vital to keeping these schools open.
We’ve built kitchens in the camp, so all food is cooked in a controlled environment that helps prevent the spread of illness.
Family Food Packs
Every month, we deliver food packs to 2000 vulnerable, Rohingya refugee families. This regular food means that families can be sure they’ll have something to eat over the coming weeks.
