Humanitarian Aid for Rohingya

No person should ever be persecuted because of their religion or culture. No one should have to struggle daily to find enough food, a place to sleep, or simply a place to exist, yet that has happened repeatedly to the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. For decades they faced religious and ethnic persecution, which escalated in 2017. They were tortured and killed in Myanmar, and their homes and villages were burned to the ground.

Almost a million escaped to the town of Cox’s Bazar in nearby Bangladesh to what became, in November 2018, the largest refugee camp in the world.

ACT Alliance, a Mission & Service global ecumenical partner, is on the ground at the Cox’s Bazar refugee camp distributing humanitarian aid in the form of food, shelter materials, warm clothing, hygiene kits, safe water, and emergency medical help.

ACT Alliance also hosted the organization Clowns Without Borders to share the importance of hygiene in a fun way. The Cox’s Bazar camp is located in a floodplain; mix that with almost a million people and the result can be a variety of diseases, some of them life-threatening. Thanks to ACT Alliance, many of the Rohingya refugees are able to keep disease at bay by using the skills they were taught and the hygiene kits they received.

Through our gifts for Mission & Service, lives are truly saved every day in Cox’s Bazar camp.

Fighting Human Trafficking

The Diocese of Durgapur of Mission & Service partner the Church of North India has a vision: Transforming Communities, Changing Lives. Since 2011, the Diocese has been doing just that with the Anti Human Trafficking Program in North and South Dinajpur Districts.

These areas are both sources and transit points for human trafficking. Two key parts of the prevention strategy are training youth, children, and their guardians to recognize human trafficking, and teaching them ways to protect themselves and help others from being trafficked.

The primary reason for trafficking is poverty. Traffickers lure parents with promises of education, a better life, and money. In some cases, parents are given cash in return for sending their children to the traffickers. But instead of the better life promised, children are put to work in brick kilns or carpentry units or as domestic servants, indentured labour, beggars, or sex trade workers. Traffickers are also involved in harvesting organs.

Through the Diocese of Durgapur, the Church of North India organizes awareness sessions with community leaders, guardians, and youth who may be directly approached by traffickers. The training includes sharing stories from trafficking victims as well as making them aware of the laws intended to protect victims and prosecute traffickers. Through a growing network of community relationships, the Diocese works with local leaders and authorities to stop this abhorrent trade.

Your gifts to Mission & Service help save adults and children from being trafficked.
