The HRF Kitchen project was set up to provide essential nutrition to the Rohingya refugees living in horrific conditions in the camps inside Bangladesh.
The influx of nearly one million refugees over the space of three months had put pressure on local resources whilst international NGO’s struggled to cover the basic needs of all those who had become destitute.
The kitchen was built next to an Islamic school (madrassa), where the number of students initially was around 300. Many parents did not want to send their children in the blistering heat to study, so children would remain hungry. Human Relief Foundation (HRF) stepped up to help.
- The HRF Kitchen operates in the Kutapalong refugee camp
- Over 1,000 children are fed each and every day
