The Rohingya Refugee Camp is the one of the world’s biggest refugee camps in the history of mankind. Thousands flew from Burma to seek asylum from the torture, rape and other atrocities from the Myanmar military. The quick influx of thousands of refugees has caused severe concerns of housing food clothes, education and health. Due to heavy monsoons and over population in unhygienic circumstances, there is a growing fears of a disease epidemic.
The monsoon floods of 2018, collapsed several homes and bridges, which was the only connection for refugees to go to markets or work place. Our AIM's local team rescued hundreds of children and their families to camp 5, where we have already built over 250 homes, bore wells and toilets for refugees. One hundred acres of forest was cleared to build the refugee camp, which is causing several environmental concerns with thousands of animals losing their habitats.
Hundreds of refuges go to sleep hungry each night due to lack of firewood for cooking. Our AIM has provided hundreds of stoves in Rohingya. According to the World Health Organization, 400 million people do not have access to essential health services. Many people struggle to get medical aid when they fall ill and face death from minor infections due to the lack of medical resources. Our AIM realized the need and took a medical/ humanitarian mission trip in November 2018 with doctors of different specialties and volunteers to help patients and refugees by visiting different camps and meeting hundreds of refugees to analyses and provide basic necessities to neglected abused women and orphans who are anxiously awaiting for food, clothes, shelter, education and medical help. Our AIM’s efforts are imparting education, food and clothes to 500 orphans each day in Kutupalang camp. We are teaching sewing classes to hundreds of women who are the victims of abuse and rape. Our AIM’s Goals are to build 500 homes, Start five more schools, Empower 500 women, and have more medical humanitarian mission trips to impact thousands of more lives.
