AMAN motivates people to consider the risk of disaster during construction of house and other infrastructures. AMAN is trying to bring the disaster and Rohingya supports issues in national consideration.

SHELTER HOMES FOR ROHINGYA REFUGEES

On 25 August 2017, hundreds of thousands of terrorized Rohingya fled from Rakhine as they came under violent attack, and villages were razed by Military Junta. This triggered an unprecedented exodus across the border to neighboring Bangladesh. Within a few weeks, half a million people entered Bangladesh seeking safety and shelter. Now the number become staggering to more than 1.3 million. As the refugees left their everything back at home, they were in dire need of food, shelter, and health facilities in the new and alien territory, Bangladesh. In response to their severe humanitarian problems, AMAN intervened immediately with its contribution, cooperation, and supervision. With the objective of making secured and sustainable Shelter homes for Rohingya Refugees where they can protect themselves from natural disasters and feel secure, constructed hundreds of shelters for the refugees in different camps. Besides the shelters, AMAN also provided the beneficiaries solar panel (with battery, light & fan), household kits, and some other necessary support related to the shelters.
