A project has been started in the name of “Assistance for Rohingya Refugees – ARR” under Emergency Program of DISA. The main Purpose of the project is to Support Rohingya Refugees fled from Mayanmer in Bangladesh. A Sr. Management Team from DISA has visited Rohingya Camps in Cox’s Bazar & Teknaf to observe the situation and learning on the need of the Rohingya people. As part of the visit, the Management team of DISA had meeting with the very active organizations like Bangladesh Red Crescent Society, Save the Children, Handicap International, Unicef and met the local Govt. Authorities like Cox’s Bazar Deputy Commissioner, Deputy Director of Social Services Department, Rohingya Orphan Children Protection Project office, In-charge of Army Administration and other organizations working for Rohingya People.
DISA Management has primarily provided most important & urgently needed instruments like Hand Mikes for helping in Awareness Raising on the Registration process of Rohingya Orphans at the Camps under the project of Ministry of Social Welfare run by Social Services Department. DISA Management has decided to keep up activities individually as well as in partnership with Social Services Department of Ministry of Social Welfare, Bangladesh Red Crescent Society and other likeminded local organizations also.
DISA Management has planned to extend more supports from its own fund as well as managing funds from national and international funding agencies. Already DISA has received some funds from a USA based organization “HELPING HUT” to run the project “Assistance for Rohingya Refugees – ARR”. Accordingly FD-7 has been approved by the NGO Affair’s Bureau of Bangladesh.
Mr. Md. Abul Khaer, Program Coordinator has been assigned as the Project Leader with two other members for the effective implementation and coordination of the project.
