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

Since August 2017, more than 700,000 Rohingya have fled from Burma to Bangladesh in search of safety and life-saving assistance. Although they are now safe from the genocidal violence they experienced at the hands of the Burmese army, they live in primitive and overcrowded camps in Cox’s Bazar. With 40,000 people per square kilometre, the camps are one of the most crowded places on earth.

It is here that the Good Factory has been helping for three years to alleviate the hunger and suffering of the Rohingya families who are trying to survive in the often undignified reality of the camp. Among them are single mothers and elderly women who are unable to cope alone in the mayhem of the camp. Every month, we supply them with food to enrich their diet and strengthen their weak bodies. We also help to equip their huts with basic items to restore at least a slight feeling of home.

Recently, thanks to you, Amina, Senowara, Minara and Momtaz received what is still considered a luxury in the camp: electricity in their huts. For single mothers and women, often exposed to sexual violence, light inside and outside the shelter is synonymous with SAFETY and normality. The ladies in our care could not hide their tears of joy when 100-watt solar panels appeared on the roofs of their huts. In addition, they received a wind generator and a torch which they need to move around the poorly lit camp in the evenings. Finally, their lives will not have to freeze after dark.

Thank you for the fact that together we can produce GOOD in a place where people have already lost hope. You know perfectly well that humanity has nothing to do with the distance that separates someone from their place of residence. That a person in deep Asia wants to love, eat and live in the same way as a person here in Poland. We are not able to give the Rohigya their rights back, we cannot give them citizenship, but we can continue to rebuild their dignity, reduce hunger and provide relief from suffering. Help us continue assisting the most vulnerable families in the camp!
