More than 900,000 Rohingya refugees live across 36 different locations in Cox’s Bazar area, in south-eastern Bangladesh. Water is scarce in most locations. It is challenging to secure adequate water sources for the whole refugee population – most of whom fled to Bangladesh in late 2017. Therefore, BASMAH has stepped up their efforts to address the massive water needs.
Rohingya refugees struggle with clean water and sanitation in Kutupalong camps. Water supplies are a major issue for impoverished families. In this part of Bangladesh, we experience a water crisis during the dry season – from end of November through April or May. The water levels fall sharply, making it very difficult to pump water.
BASMAH is ensuring that refugees receive enough water and that the tube wells are properly maintained.
The cost to dug one bore well is $1300. With your donation, we can help a family have access to clean water through the installation of a tube well pump.
Our partner organization Basmah Foundation have dug bore wells at various locations in Refugee camps and at other Bangladesh local areas where it was needed most.
