Bangladesh Rohingya Crisis

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people have crossed over to Bangladesh, fleeing violence.

They are living in terrible conditions and need life-saving assistance now. Oxfam is responding, providing clean water, sanitation and essential supplies to thousands of people.

Rohingya families are being relocated from flood risk areas to new locations in the camps. Oxfam is setting up the water supply in these new areas.

From our staff

Farhana Hafiz, Emergency Food Security and Livelihood Co-ordinator

 I've worked at Oxfam for seven years, but only recently joined the humanitarian team. In my earlier work, I was involved in the We Can campaign, which breaks through the silence surrounding domestic violence. That campaign is now a huge social movement, with one million change makers involved - so I'm proud to have been part of the whole process.

More broadly, Oxfam's work in Bangladesh focuses on changing people's attitudes and beliefs, as well as on community development and campaigning. We help people develop leadership skills and earn a better living, as well as supporting projects that improve people's resilience to disasters.
