Over a million of Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals (FDMNs) took shelter in 34 camps in Cox’s Bazar, a district in south-eastern Bangladesh in August 2017. The Government of Bangladesh, together with national and international partners, have been proactively responding to this crisis through extensive humanitarian response. There is a coordinated effort to provide critical lifesaving assistance – including food, nutrition, shelter, water, health and hygiene, psycho‐social support and counselling, and basic education services – to the Rohingya people living in the camps and host community settlements.
ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) is responding to the Rohingya crisis since 2017 and working on Site Management and Site Development (SMSD), Protection, Disaster Management, WASH and Self-reliance. AAB is working as a site management agency in four camps in Teknaf Uapzia (camp- 21, 26, 27 and NRC), and doing site development work in three camps in Ukhiya Upazila (camp – 11, 12 & 19). AAB has protection and WASH activities in camp – 04, 04 ext., 09, 10, 11, 12 and 18.
