Photo exhibition on refugee crisis held

A daylong photo exhibition titled ‘194 Days of the Myanmar Refugee Crisis—Respecting Women: Faces and Stories of Resilience’ held on Tuesday at Jatra Biroti Gallery in the capital’s Banani area. CARE Bangladesh organised the event to observe International Women’s Day and to mark the six months anniversary of the refugee crisis in Bangladesh.

The exhibition was attended by representatives from the UN, diplomatic missions, and different national and international non-govt. organizations, including Danish Ambassador Mikael Hemniti Winther, UNDP’s Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, Mia Seppo, and others. The event was also attended by high-profile global CARE delegates, including CEO of CARE Austria, Dr. Barschdorf-Hager Andrea, CEO of CARE Denmark, Rasmus Stuhr Jakobsen, CARE International’s Head of Emergency Operations Sally Austin, and Deputy Director (Operations) / Humanitarian Team (HT) of CARE USA Dawelbait Elnour Mohamed Adam.

Zia Choudhury, Country Director of CARE Bangladesh welcomed the guests.

 Since last 25 August, 671,000  people from Myanmar have crossed into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh following violence in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State; making this exodus one of the fastest growing refugee crises in the world. Over 880,000 refugees are now living in Cox’s Bazar, the world’s most densely populated refugee settlement by now.

As of now, CARE has reached nearly 200,000 people through distribution of food and non-food items (NFI), shelter kits, hygiene and dignity kit, and services as to health, protection and GBV (Gender-Based Violence). As part of a consortium, CARE also worked with another 180,000 children with malnutrition where CARE is the technical partner.
