Summary

Since Aug. 25, 2017, more than 723,000 refugees -- mostly women and children -- have fled violence and are arriving in already overcrowded camps in Bangladesh. These families have nothing and are in urgent need of food, shelter, water, medical care, and emergency supplies. World Concern is responding by providing refugee families with vital aid that includes food rations, shelter materials, hygiene kits, cooking fuel, psychosocial support, child protection, and training to prevent disease.

Challenge

"Three weeks ago, I had a husband and four children. Today, I have two children. Our village was attacked and my house burnt to the ground. My husband was brutally killed. While fleeing, I lost two of my children. I do not know if they are dead or alive. We have spent 17 days walking, and we have arrived here." - 27-year-old mother and Rohingya refugee

Solution

Your gift will provide critical aid to a refugee family who has escaped violence and has nothing. With a 25-year history working in Bangladesh, World Concern is on the ground and ready to deliver emergency food (lentils, rice, oil, salt, and more), shelter materials for protection from the rain and elements, and vital hygiene kits to protect children and families from cholera and other diseases. Our partners in this response will also provide medical care to the sick or wounded.

Long-Term Impact

As the Bangladeshi government works to register refugees, World Concern will be ready to assist in resettlement, having numerous long-term disaster recovery and community development programs in Bangladesh. We will utilize our experience and community connections to help families rebuild their lives. And we are working with youth to provide education and vocational training.
