Bangladesh

Hundreds of thousands of people had to flee their homes after an upsurge in violence broke out against the civilian population in the northwest of Myanmar last year. Since August 2017, more than 722,000 people have fled to refugee camps in neighbouring Bangladesh, bringing the total number of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh to nearly 900,000. There are 1.3 million people in need - including refugees and locals. The conditions in the overcrowded refugee camps are extremely difficult. 

Safety is a major concern, especially during the monsoon season. People in Need is supporting individuals strengthen their shelters to protect against the heavy rain and wind and help community groups increase general safety, especially for women and girls. The massive population influx to an area already struggling with poverty and yearly natural disasters has had a serious impact on local inhabitants, environmental resources, agricultural land and the local job market. PIN aims to support both refugees and the host community, fostering better social cohesion.
