Concern Worldwide has today announced that it will be stepping up its humanitarian response in Bangladesh as a result of the influx of Rohingya people crossing the border from Myanmar.
Nearly 400,000 vulnerable Rohingyas have poured into the Cox’s Bazar area of southeastern Bangladesh since violence erupted in Rakhine State, Myanmar last month.
Makeshift refugee camps are at full capacity with new arrivals, many of whom are suffering from gunshot wounds and other life-threatening injuries, urgently needing food, water, shelter, and medical assistance.
Concern Worldwide’s Haiti team is preparing for the potentially devastating impact of Hurricane Irma on Haiti’s poor and vulnerable communities. While the exact trajectory of the hurricane is difficult to predict, it is anticipated that Irma will hit the northern part of the country on Thursday and Friday.
On Haiti’s largest island, La Gonâve, we are compiling stocks in the event they are needed for distribution to those impacted by flooding and destruction.
Within a short timeframe, a multi-sectoral project, involving nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions and cross-sectoral coordination, was successfully established in a drought-affected community and achieved impact.
Heavy rains in Freetown, Sierra Leone, caused mudslides that killed nearly 500 people and displaced thousands. Approximately 600 people are still unaccounted for. Concern’s distribution teams have been activated and are delivering essential supplies to some of the most affected communities.
Coping with disaster
Kathmandu (23rd August) - Sixteen million people are affected by severe flooding across Nepal, India, and Bangladesh, according to International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC).

Over 150,500 families have been displaced due to the floods and more than 336,000 have been affected.
