Osman Consulting held a meeting on the 21st February 2018 with the WASH Sector Coordinator for the (Rohingya) Mega camp at Cox’s Bazar, to report on the Winterisation project they had just implemented for Baitulmaal. The meeting also focussed on identifying the various areas that need immediate attention from the NGO community in order to address any gaps.
Baitulmaal through Osman Consulting have distributed 15,000 Winterisation kits for Rohingya beneficiaries in the Ukhia Upazila mega camp, for recently arrived refugees fleeing the violence in the Rakhine state.
The WASH cluster lead highlighted that “since the 26th August 2017, the camps basic needs have been met, yet quality is not up to standard”. Improving the quality of service is now the priority of the cluster and the 51 organisations addressing this crisis.
Three main areas were highlighted as to where NGO’s can immediately contribute towards improving the overall quality of service for Rohingya beneficiaries:
- Hygiene Promotion
- Water Infrastructure/Water treatment
- Human Sludge Management
The camp is proving very challenging for NGO’s and international organisations due to the ever growing influx of people in a very limited space available.
Osman Consulting is working with many NGO’s on WASH, Shelter, Emergency and Ramadan projects and would be happy to discuss how your project can fill in gaps at the mega camp in Cox’s Bazar; please email firstname.lastname@example.org
