We are currently working in both Za’atari Refugee Camp in Jordan, and the camps of Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. In Za’atari, we are supporting Syrian refugees by helping provide them with opportunities to learn new livelihood skills, such as sewing. We are also helping provide valuable opportunities for children to learn, grow, and heal from the trauma they witnessed when fleeing their homes in Syria, through the provision of psychosocial support, education, and relaxation opportunities such as Zumba and Capoeira classes. You can read about our ongoing work in Za’atari here.
In Cox’s Bazar, your generosity has helped support a number of different initiatives. Through the provision of safe spaces for women, you have helped provide a vital space for Rohingya refugee women to come together, receive support and counseling, and heal from the trauma they have witnessed. Your support has also helped provide a quality education through essential literacy, numeracy, and life skills to Rohingya refugee children, whose education had been interrupted.
