Description and results


January 2018 – Following the outbreak of violence in Northern Rakhine State in August 2017, more than 647,000 Rohingya crossed from Myanmar into Bangladesh over a period of several months. These refugees joined more than 200,000 Rohingya already in the district of Cox's Bazar following earlier waves of displacement. With GAC’s support, Save the Children Canada is helping to respond to the immediate needs of refugees in Cox’s Bazar, including the specific needs of women, girls and boys. Activities include: (1) improving access to sufficient water supply, gender-sensitive sanitation facilities and hygiene materials; (2) increasing access to emergency shelter and non-food items; (3) providing child friendly spaces with activities focusing on psychosocial support, protection and well-being of children; and (4) case management of children at risk of violence and other protection risks, including unaccompanied children or those separated from their families during the displacement to Bangladesh.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased equitable access for women, men, girls and boys to improved water, hygiene and sanitation services; (2) increased access to shelter material and dignified settlement; (3) increased access to psychosocial services for girls and boys; and (4) increased access to referral and care arrangements for boys and girls, including unaccompanied or separated children. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crisis or that are facing acute food insecurity.
