CONTEXT :

Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.

HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes in more than 55 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.

Context of mission:
A high proportion of the Undocumented Myanmar Nationals (UNM) refugees in Cox’s Bazar remain in a chronic emergency situation due to long-term challenges to find a durable solution to their status in Myanmar and Bangladesh and therefore require continuous humanitarian assistance. The new influx, with more than 600,000 arrivals from August 2017, has created even more pressure on resources and increasing humanitarian needs. Two years later; 910,911 Refugees are registered in the District (August 2019, UNHCR data) and live in extremely basic conditions in 34 camps across the district. The host Bangladeshi communities are also affected by the presence of a large refugee population living in the region. The two sub-districts of Ukhiya and Teknaf, where the refugees are mostly residing, are vulnerable to increased rates of poverty due to lack of public and private services, scarce job opportunities and limited natural resources, among other key causes. In addition, this coastal region is continuously dealing with the impacts of natural disasters, mostly cyclones and flooding, during which meagre assets of the local population are damaged or destroyed. The humanitarian needs resulting from the Mora’s devastating impact and the new arrivals of refugees have not been fully met yet.

In response to the massive influx of refugees, HI set-up an emergency intervention responding to the needs of thousands of refugees. Multi-sectorial mobile teams are currently working in 13 camps located in both Teknaf and Ukhyia upzilas providing services in physical rehabilitation, health, protection and PSS. Because of the extremely vulnerability of certain persons, the mobile intervention helps reaching people forgotten by static activities.

Through its brands ATLAS logistics, HI set-up in 2018 two common storage platforms (Leda and Upchinprang) and is providing transport services to support other actors in their intervention.
In addition as part the Atlas strategy for 2020; HI/AL is looking for opportunities for expanding its activities in terms of Preparedness for Emergency response. In case this new sector of intervention gets funded, the Atlas Programme Manager will be expected to launch and oversee this set of activities.
