Cox’s Bazaar in Bangladesh is home to an estimated 1 million Rohingya Refugees living in 35 refugee camps making it one of the densest camps in the world. Weather conditions, lack of shelter, food, and medical assistance are all factors to a lifetime of struggle and difficulty. The Rohingya refugee camps are the densest refugee camps in the world. With almost a million-people residing in these camps, COVID-19 can have a devastating impact.
In March of 2021, a massive fire engulfed the Balukhali Rohingya Refugee Camp, destroying thousands of shelter homes, tents, medical clinics, children learning centers, and other amenities. These fires left around 50,000 Rohingya refugees homeless. This tragedy follows a similar fire in May of 2020 in Camp 1, located at Lombashiaghona, and another major fire in January 2021, which destroyed hundreds of homes in Nayapara Camp. HHRD began assisting affected families immediately following each tragedy.
HHRD has been assisting the needy in Myanmar since 2008 and scaled up its assistance during the August 2017 mass migration. Through the Rohingya Relief Fund, and with the help of vetted partner NGOs, humanitarian assistance has been provided with the deployment of several emergency response teams from the USA, as they conduct needs assessments.
