Photo exhibition documents 194 days of Rohingya refugee crisis
The exhibition was attended by representative from the UN, diplomatic missions, and different national and international non-govt organizations including the Danish Ambassador H E Mikael Hemniti Winther, UNDP’s Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, H E Mia Seppo, and others. The event was also attended by high-profile global CARE delegates including CEO of CARE Austria, Dr Barschdorf-Hager Andrea, CEO of CARE Denmark, Rasmus Stuhr Jakobsen, CARE International’s Head of Emergency Operations Sally Austin, and Deputy Director (Operations) and Humanitarian Team of CARE USA Dawelbait Elnour Mohamed Adam. Zia Choudhury, Country Director of CARE Bangladesh said, “I want to reflect on the refugee women who took on the most disproportionate amount of duty and burden during this crisis. They are taking care of family, collecting food, providing shelter, collecting relief; and doing all of this with positivity despite the chaos all around. I also thank the Government of Bangladesh along with UN and other non-government organizations, private sectors for coming forward during this crisis.” Since last August 25, 671,000 people from Myanmar have crossed into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh following violence in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State; making this exodus one of the fastest growing refugee crises in the world. Over 880,000 refugees are now living in Cox’s Bazar, the world’s most densely populated refugee settlement. As of now, CARE has reached nearly 200,000 people through distribution of food and non-food items, shelter kits, hygiene and dignity kit, and services for health, protection from gender-based violence. By the end of 2018, CARE aims to reach out to 600,000 people, both refugees and host communities so that they are able to lead a better life until they are reinstated to their homeland.
