Doing something good for Mother’s Day

Bangladesh

It is one of the most densely populated and at the same time the poorest countries in the world. There are more than one thousand inhabitants here per one square kilometer. The country’s population is almost 150 million. In the neighboring Myanmar, since mid-2017, thousands of the Rohingya people have lost their lives, their villages have been burned down, and the survivors approached the border with Bangladesh. Within several months, more than 750 refugees settled in the border area.

Overview:
  • The UN has been calling persecution of the Rohingya an ethnic cleansing
  • The Rohingya are the most persecuted ethnic group today
  • the world’s largest refugee camp, home to approximately 920,000 Rohingya, is located near the city of Cox’s Bazar
  • 55% of the camp residents are children

All mothers want the same for their children: a safe, healthy life full of happiness. For three years, Good Factory has been working to alleviate the hunger and suffering of Rohingya families, survivors of a horrific ethnic cleansing attack carried out by the Burmese military in which houses were burned, men killed, and women raped and beaten unconscious. Nearly one million victims have found refuge at Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh, the world’s largest refugee settlement. They live crowded into a few square meters in makeshift huts, with no basic rights or hope for the future.

Among the many victims are single mothers Minara, Momtaz, Fatema, Nur Bano and Senowara. The traumatic events scarred them for life – physically and emotionally. But they haven’t given up. They still have their children to live for, and continue to strive to create a semblance of normalcy for their young ones.

Today, we managed to help them in this by providing a power supply. Making sure the shelters and the roads leading up to them are well-lit is essential to the mothers’ safety, who are often victims of sexual violence. Now that they have power, they can also use fans, a necessity in Bangladesh where temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius make the plastic and bamboo huts unbearably hot.

The cost of a single set with a 100-watt solar panel, a windmill, and a flashlight necessary for navigating the poorly lit camp in the evenings is about 650 PLN (180 USD). We need 10 such kits, so our goal is to raise a total of 6,500 PLN ( 1800 USD). We need just 200 people willing to donate 32,5 PLN to achieve our target. On this special day, help us honor these brave mothers who relentlessly fight for a better, dignified life for their children.

What better gift to give them than helping them create a safe environment for their children? Thanks to you, we can make this happen all year round. Help us celebrate Mother’s Day by doing something good together with us!
