Refugee Camp Fires

DONATE NOW TO ERDO

 

 

 

ERDO is providing emergency supplies to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh after their sixth fire of the year.

Bangladesh fire 2022

Sadly, the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar has just experienced the sixth fire of the year. Fires in the camp are occurring more often as the camp is overcrowded, and shelters are being built close together with cheap, flammable materials.

Now, ERDO is helping 314 of the families who lost everything in this recent fire, providing them with essential supplies to start rebuilding their lives.

When the refugee crises escalated in 2017, ERDO worked alongside the Pentecostal Assemblies of Bangladesh with the Rohingya people. Families who had left everything behind to escape violence settled temporarily in Bangladesh. Five years later, however, the Rohingya people still cannot return home.

Over the past year we have been rebuilding 15 wells that were damaged in a previous fire. Now, this current fire has affected the areas of the refugee camp where our partners, the Pentecostal Assemblies of Bangladesh, work most closely with families.

Together, we will be providing families with clothing, mosquito nets, bedding, kitchen utensils and hygiene items. We will be working with 2,000 people, 314 families, who were most impacted by the recent fire.

We are asking for donations of $230 to support a single Rohingya family with needed supplies and personal effects. Thank you for working with us to ensure these families have resources at this very difficult time.

A donation of any amount will make an impact on a family in crises.
