Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries of the world: 1,110 inhabitants per square kilometre, this is five times as much as in Germany. The country is currently experiencing an extreme high influx of refugees from Myanmar. On August 25, 2017, violent confrontations happened between Rohingya rebels and the Myanmar police and army. Since that day, more than 600,000 Rohingya have fled violence and moved to Bangladesh. This situation is a challenge to Bangladesh.

From the project location in Rangoon Welthungerhilfe aid workers bought produce from local rice mills and immediately began distributing it. "The people are starving.
