The humanitarian crisis caused by escalating violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State is causing suffering on a catastrophic scale. Extreme violence and discrimination have driven over 727,000 Rohingya refugees across the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
Women and children are extremely vulnerable, living in highly challenging circumstances, fighting malnutrition, exposed to the monsoon elements and dependent on aid.
Keeping this in mind, we in collaboration with Basmah Foundation are constructing sixth Children Care Centre at Camp 13, Block C-35, Barmapara, Thaingkhali, Ukhiya, Cox’s Bazar which will provide a safe place for kids to learn and grow. The center strives to provide them emotional and moral support. We will provide free books, free snacks, school dress and bags etc.
Volunteers from our partner organization Basmah Foundation (Government of Bangladesh NGO Affairs Bureau Registration Number – 3160) help in running day-to-day operations of this Children Care Centre. This project and all services offered at this Children Care Centre is approved by Government of Bangladesh NGO Affairs Bureau (Approval Number – 03.07.2666.6184.108.40.206.)
Alhamdulillah! In short period of time, women at Basmah Sewing training centers have started manufacturing school uniforms for Rohingya children who are studying at this Basmah Children Care Center.
