COVID-19 in the World's Largest Refugee Camp

Empowering the Rohingya Children through Knowledge
Empowering the Rohingya Children through Knowledge

Since their arrival in Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees faced new challenges – floods, landslides, severe storms and now, they are fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. 


“My family had a beautiful house which had some land, livestock and a beautiful pond”
, says ten-year-old Raja*. His family left all this behind and rebuilt their lives in a refugee camp far from home. At the Safe Haven project by JAAGO Foundation, this is the first time he has received any education and training since his family fled to Bangladesh. Before the pandemic, Raja used to play with his friends in the play zone and learn their lessons together. He also enjoyed and learned a lot from the personal protection activities and proper hygiene lessons.     


But since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, all the learning centres were closed. We had to suspend all the activities except food distribution and medical facilities. However, we have been in touch with our students and ensured everyone is safe and staying in their house. 

 

This year, we were making preparations to open our Learning Centers, but we had to stop everything again due to the second wave of the pandemic, as we couldn't; risk the lives of these beautiful children. But we are tracking our students and their well-being through our Rohingya volunteers. They are helping us as much as they can.   

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a new threat to these overcrowded conditions. With your support, we are trying to ensure that all Rohingya children are supported with the holistic care needed to return them to a sense of normalcy and ensure that they can thrive.

 

Thank You Note

We are very grateful to the donors of this project for supporting the young minds to give them a better future. We have come a long way, but there is a lot to be done still. This journey couldn't have been possible without our patrons, NGO partners, corporates, donors, and well-wishers who have been our companions in the path of fulfilling this dream. Thank you for your generous support of our Safe Haven Project, which has been able to put a smile on the faces of 500 Rohingya children. We would love to express our appreciation on behalf of them. Our current activities still require a lot of support, and we are on the way to developing the project even better. So we sincerely request our well-wishers and donors to keep supporting us. We hope you all stay safe with your nearest and dearest ones!
