It is the fastest growing humanitarian crisis in the world. In just three months, 623,000 forcibly-displaced Myanmar nationals have crossed the Bangladesh-Myanmar border. More than half of them are women and children. Many have experienced sexual and gender-based violence.
BRAC continues to scale up its humanitarian response, reaching more than 467,000 people with at least one critical life service.
So far, thanks to the support from you and other partners, BRAC has:
Reached almost 30,000 children through 197 child friendly spaces. Watch our latest video to learn more about how we’re helping children affected by the crisis.
Installed 11,688 latrines, 1,129 tube wells, and built 1,787 bathing cubes.
Opened ten health centers and 50 mobile clinics, providing more than 450,000 health services, especially for cases of potentially fatal diseases like pneumonia, diarrhoea, and tuberculosis.
Distributed vegetable seeds to more than 4,000 households to increase their food security.
Planted more than 2,000 trees in and around the makeshift settlements to contribute to reforestation.
The crisis will not be over soon. BRAC will continue to scale up its emergency response to provide humanitarian aid for displaced families across the informal settlements and camps, as well affected host communities.
