Project Report | May 10, 2018
Report title: Your compassion is fueling our progress

By Saima Hassan | Project Leader

Baby Sadia
Baby Sadia

Dear friends,

Our amazing team that comprises the Humanitarian Assistance program are nothing short of super heroes and have been working round the clock to provide the assistance and care needed by the Rohingya refugees.

We are grateful to Humans of New York for featuring our Executive Director, Immad Ahmed in their Rohingya series. Immad is leading the entire HAP program for Rohingya refugees and is one of our super heroes. You can read the Humans of New York post about him here: http://bit.ly/HONYOBAT.

Here are some areas in which progress has been significant since you last heard from us. 

 

Health clinic:

Sadia was the very first baby who has been delivered by our clinic in the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh. We are happy to report that both mother and child are doing great after delivery. Our midwife Israt, who delivered Sadia, visited their house to do a follow up and provide medicine. We are grateful for our wonderful medical team who provide quality care and attention to all patients. Three other babies have been delivered after Sadia. Our clinic continues to treat anywhere between 350-400 patients every day.

Learning Centers:

To prepare for the new classrooms, or Temporary Learning Centers (TLCs), in Zone RR, 26 teachers were interviewed and given a proper teacher training. Among them 14 were Burmese teachers and 12 were local Bangladeshi teachers. The 3-day training included basic teaching techniques such as the quality of a good teacher, basic education for the kids, how to treat and behave with kids, classroom activities and how to allow students to enjoy their class time.

We also trained new teachers on rules and responsibilities toward the community, classroom, and students suffering from trauma. The training was successful, with April 5th marking our teachers’ first day in our new TLC’s in Zone RR. Training was conducted by our education team including Hassan, Ayub, and Nusrat.

 

Construction of shelters

In the upcoming monsoon season, there are chances of cyclone caused landslides and more natural disasters. To deal with the crises that would ensue from this, on the 9th of April, OBAT/HAP started the shelter project in camp 5. Because of the hard work and efficiency of our team and laborers, 55 shelters were completed by 12th April. Approximately, 300 people will live in those shelters. Another 70 of the shelters are work in progress. To date, 422 shelters have been completed for about 2,500 people in the different camps.

Other than these areas, a park and playground for children as well as 8 tubewells providing clean water to 5,000 people, have been built so far. The current number of bridges to facilitate transport over hilly terrain, currently stands at six.

Please invite your friends and families to join our mission of bringing relief and rehabilitation to the Rohingya refugees.

 

Your compassion inspires us and fuels our progress. Thank you for fighting with us to help the Rohingya.

 

Best,

OBAT team.
