ACTIVE EMERGENCY

Rohingya Refugee Emergency Response

Over a million people are displaced and are located in temporary camps in the Cox’s Bazar District of Bangladesh. They are in need of ongoing humanitarian assistance. The camps are densely populated and plagued by frequent fires and flooding, sexual and gender-based violence, and open defecation.

Those living in the camps are subjected to life-threatening conditions and extreme weather, including monsoons and cyclones. Crowding is causing increases in the spread of Dengue fever, Scabies, Diphtheria, and severe skin diseases. Health care including emotional support and enhanced security in the camps are urgently needed to save lives

FH’s immediate focus is on keeping pregnant women and young children alive by providing them with food and primary health care services. FH is also providing ongoing psycho-social support, particularly to women in the camps.
