Context


  The refugee camps at Cox’s Bazar area of Bangladesh accommodate over a million Rohingyas who fled the military crackdown in the Rakhine province of Myanmar in 2017.
On Monday, March 22, 2021 a massive cloud of smoke came out of the Balukhali Rohingya camp at Ukhiya in Cox's Bazar. The fire killed several people and destroyed thousands of homes. The fire also left Balukhali Balibazar, the biggest local market in the Rohingya camp, in ashes. Products worth at least Taka 50 Crore were gutted in the fire.

 

Damage Scenario

  Due to frequent wind flow, the fire swept through camps 8W, 8E, 9, and 10, leaving over 10,000 infrastructures including shelters, mosques, community centres, learning centres, service centres, learning facilities, shops burnt to ashes. People in adjacent camps (5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 17 and 18) have evacuated their households too as the fire spread and immersed adjacent areas. According to humanitarian agencies and local authorities.

 

PRIOR NEED BY NEED ASSEMENT

Strengthen Primary Health care Service to manage the higher patient load impacted by fire in camps to cover the health care facilities

Shelters need to be rebuilt

Ensure continue of COVID 19 awareness & vaccination campaign

Further Training on Fire safety of health facilities and burn care

All hazard Disaster Emergency preparedness training and Management

 

RAPID EMERGENCY RESPONSE by Dhaka Community Hospital (DCHT) & Community Initiative Society (CIS)


DCHT and CIS stands by the sufferers of Rohingya camp fire in Cox’s Bazar. DCHT & CIS primary healthcare centers were 24/7 available even in emergency situation to provide health service in this fire disaster. But the effects of this lethal and destructive blaze will only exacerbate critical needs and further strain already overstretched resources. With the start of the monsoon looming, rebuilding is critical. An advance team from Dhaka already reached to the effected place to join the emergency team for monitoring the rapid response management.

DCHT and  APAD KOREA response will continue in the coming days as fire affected community will need our extended support. 

 

Thank you for your support.

The Rohingya refugee camp has been closed since COVID-19 Virus occured. 

The Rohingya, who live in Bangladesh regugee camps, often pay brokers to go to Malaysia, where the state religion is Islam. However, as Malaysia has tightened its coastal security for fear og the apread of COVID-19 Virst, refugees are frequently unable to enter the coast.

As the boundaries are tightened, it is also having difficulty get supplies. We need a lot of clean drinking water, food and sanitary products, ETC. We are making a lot of efforts to get clean water directly in the camp. There are several attempts to establish a system to purify rainwater or digging wells. 

We are conducting continuous hygiene education at Rohingya refugee camp. In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19 virus, continuously educating people on how to wear masks.

COVID-19 virus is not easily ending. Long-term countermeasures should be prepared and support Rohingya refugees to live sustainable lives.

We always deeply thank you for your support.

Thank you.
