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, World Vision Canada is helping to respond to the immediate needs of refugees in Cox’s Bazar, including the specific needs of women and children. Activities include: (1) providing child friendly spaces with gender-sensitive sanitation facilities; (2) establishing women and young child spaces , with space for breast-feeding, water and sanitation facilities and peer support groups; (3) undertaking child protection awareness campaigns; (4) providing dignity kits, as well as safety kits which include flashlights and clothing; and (5) providing safe bathing spaces for women and girls.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to safe, gender and age-friendly community environments(safe spaces) for children and adolescents affected by displacement; (2) increased access to safe spaces for women; (3) increased access to safe drinking water; and (4) improved access to gender-sensitive sanitation facilities and hygiene materials conforming to cultural norms. 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.
