2021 - Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh

In the world's largest refugee camp Kutupalong in Cox's Bazar, with one million Rohingya refugees, children are exposed to the risk of violence and sexual abuse on a daily basis. About half a million children live in the camp. 

Tragic events, for us almost impossible to comprehend, like rape, dead children dumped in the woods, human traffickers inside the camp, kidnappings, prostitution, sexual slavery and other forms of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) are being reported far too often. 

For children, a refugee camp should be a place for temporary protection against violence and suffering. And not the opposite. Children are covered by the FN child convention. They have the right to education, health care, food and protection.

Barnfonden through Childfund work for prevention of Sexual and Gender Based Violence against Rohingya children and youth.

Cox's Bazar

28.04.2021

In the world's largest refugee camp Kutupalong in Cox's Bazar, with one million Rohingya refugees, children are exposed to the risk of violence and sexual abuse on a daily basis. About half a million children live in the camp. Almost 76,000 are younger than 3 years and have during their lives not seen anything else than the camp.

The Corona virus is everywhere. It is a pandemic. We are for understandable reasons focused on our own everyday life. But, also in Ethiopia the everyday life is highly affected. More than you might imagine.

After a long journey the school buildings are ready. The inauguration has taken place. Children and parents were happy and proud! Dance, songs and a tour through the buildings were part of the program. The project delivered 3 school buildings with 4 class rooms each.

Quite some work has been done the last months. Even though floodings have made the work difficult. The result looks very good!

The walls of four classrooms in Barnfondens school are now in place! Also the construction details necessary for the roof have been built.
