Monitored shelters
Rohingya beneficiaries


Bamboo, string and plastic sheeting…
The only materials authorised for the construction of shelters for Rohingya families.

In August 2017, an entire people left their memories behind to escape a death promised by the Burmese junta.

In 2024, all they have left is a small bamboo hut covered in plastic sheeting, tied with strings in a foreign country…

With no nationality in their country of asylum, they are denied the right to own land or work outside the camp.

Their survival depends solely on humanitarian aid.

In a country where summers are marked by high temperatures and violent monsoons last for more than five months, the ongoing construction and repair of shelters is crucial to the survival of this impoverished population.

Since 2018, thanks to our experience in building, monitoring and repairing more than 4,750 shelters for 29,000 beneficiaries, we have developed proactive expertise on the ground, in collaboration with our Rohingya teams, who are connected to the real needs of their community.

The heat, which dries out the bamboo, the sun, which burns the tarpaulins, the wind and the intense monsoon rains, are the causes of the fragility of the already very precarious housing structures.

In addition, the very high human density of the camps regularly leads to accidental fires that spread like wildfire, leaving nothing for those who already had very little.

Several thousand refugees then have to be rehoused as a matter of urgency, totally dependent on our ability to react.

Thanks to your generosity, we can commit the necessary funds to anticipate this recurring need and respond with a lead time to the emergency of the most destitute.
