The Rohingya Project
THE ROHINGYA PROJECT
The team have actively been working on our latest project where we are providing medical, dental and welfare aid for Rohingyan Refugees within Bangladesh. We are proud to announce that we are partnering with Syria Relief for this project. Syria Relief are the project implantation partner for leading UK charities such as SAVE THE CHILDREN and Unicef.
Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have been forced to flee from their homes in Myanmar and are currently living in deplorable conditions. Those that survive have given harrowing accounts of death and violence, including hundreds of cases of rape. Following a needs assesment in bangladesh, dental aid has been identified as an area of priority.
For the dental project, RCF operate a mobile dental clinic, deliver our preventative dentistry programme “Healthy Smiles” and ultimately aim to create a sustainable oral health programme to be used by local school teachers.
RCF have organised multiple fundraising events for all volunteers to get involved in. Funds raised will be used to fund the dental project, medical equipment and go towards essential welfare items including food, shelter and water sanitisation. If you are unable to join the team in Bangladesh but still want to help in any capacity you can join the team in our fundraising events. If you would like to arrange your own fundraising event, please get in touch with the team on firstname.lastname@example.org. We have suggested some fundraising ideas in the fundraise section.
