Rohingya Response

RDRS Bangladesh, in partnership with the Geneva-based Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and Australia-based Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS), started a program titled “LWF-RDRS Emergency Program (LREP)” in Cox’s Bazar since February 2019 to provide humanitarian supports (e.g. WASH, protection, supplementary foods, Non-Food Items, etc) to the Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals (FDMNs) in Camp # 18 as well as the nearby host community people in Ukhiya Upazila. In parallel, the organization plants and nurtures locally adapted saplings in the deforested parts of the camp and host communities. For providing humanitarian support to the FDMNs, the organization acts as a gap-filling agency.

Since September 2020, with funding support from the Diaconia of the Evangelical Church of the Czech Brethren (DECCB), the NGO expanded its program to Camp # 11 and 12 as well as in Moheshkhali Upazila. The organization has two offices in Cox’s Bazar District- one in the CXB Sadar led by a Project Manager and a field office in Ukhiya led by a Project Officer. Currently, the organization has eleven (11) full-time staff- 06 of them are based in the Ukhiya Field Office and 05 in its CXB Sadar Office.

Since February 2019, the organization has undertaken five (05) projects (04 of these are accomplished already) as summarized below:
