When in 2017, water samples from the Rohingya camps’ households were tested…
92% of them were found to have been contaminated by various harmful viruses and bacteria.
According to the United Nations, Rohingya people are among the most oppressed ethnic groups in the world.
They are not identified by any state; and, no government takes their responsibility.
They are denied even the most basic rights.
Their country, Myanmar, has forced them to leave and fled to safer areas in other countries.
A large number of Rohingya people have taken refuge in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh.
The area does not have basic facilities and clean water for such a huge population.
Water supply is scarce and the little water they get is dirty and smelly, carrying diseases such as Hepatitis, typhoid, cholera, dysentery, etc.
And, their situation is far from improving…
Clean water is the most basic human need and no one should be deprived of it.
We must all come together to provide them with access to clean water.
And, bring heartfelt smiles to their faces.
It will be sadqa-e-jariyah for you.
The rewards will keep piling up in your favor, even after you leave the world… for as long as these people drink from the water wells we are gathering for.
Rohingya people are an Indo-Aryan group of people, mostly Muslims, who have been displaced by their native country, Myanmar.
Not only were they rejected by their own country but were also subjected to horrible genocide in 2017 and, since then, their condition has worsened.
They are not given identity of any state and are forced to live the lives of Rohingya People with no relief in sight.
Most of them have taken refuge in developing countries.
In Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh, about 900,000 Rohingya people have taken refuge across 36 locations. The underdeveloped city does not have access to proper food, water, and basic healthcare facilities.
With the memories of their loved ones’ slaughter in 2017, these Rohingya People now have to carry the burden of their loved ones’ plight every day.
They see their kids die of hunger or thirst, or due to outbreaks of diseases, such as diarrhea, cholera, and viral hepatitis
The main cause of these disease outbreaks is contaminated water.
They are stuck between the horrible choices of death due to thirst and death due to contaminated water.
Ek Plate Biryani is the brainchild of a handful of us Canadian residents who wanted to give back to society.
We knew so many in the world are suffering. And, we wanted to help them.
When we set out to donate, we didn’t know who to trust. Most of the organizations did not offer enough proof.
There, we decided to go the extra mile and create a platform where anyone from any part of the world can help the needy…
Hence, Ek Plate Biryani came into being.
Ek Plate Biryani is a registered Not-For-Profit Organization based in Canada and operating in Pakistan, Uganda, India, and Bangladesh.
Our team includes a number of trained, professional, and honest operation managers and quality control managers, along with several volunteers.
We aim to help people in every possible way. So far, we have the following projects under our belt:
In our setup, every penny is accounted for. We ensure you receive the proof whenever you need them.
This organization has been built for YOU. Where you can come forward to improve the conditions of your fellow beings.
And, today, Rohingya people at Cox’s Bazaar need your help.
Cox’s Bazaar, itself, is a developing city in Bangladesh with little resources.
The city suddenly experienced a huge influx of Rohingya People in 2017. The resources that were few now became too scarce to rely on.
The seasons of Bangladesh have been making it worse for the Rohingya People.
The dry spell that the city sees every year, usually from March to May, takes away what little water they have.
Then, come the wet-seasons from June to September. It rains a lot during these months, flooding the area and destroying many of the tube wells that have been installed.
Another problem is the outbreaks resulting from dirty water — contaminated with hordes of viruses and bacteria.
Besides, with no clean water for proper washing, they have no choice but to store water in unsanitized containers. This results in further contamination with viruses and bacteria which then keep on multiplying… worsening the situation.
These Rohingya People live in congested camps. Their living situation makes the diseases spread faster.
If you can help provide them with clean water, you can help save hundreds of lives every year.
Since 2017, non-governmental organizations from all over the world have been coming forward to help.
They have been installing various kinds of tube wells to draw water from the ground.
However, the population is huge. And, tube wells are still not enough to cater to all of them.
Water scarcity is still there.
Imagine having to think twice before drinking a glass of water or washing your face.
That’s how difficult it is for them.
Water and good health are the primary needs that every individual deserves.
Our team is contributing by installing tube wells at Cox’s Bazaar.
The goal is to install as many tube wells as possible to help overcome water scarcity and outbreaks of water-borne diseases.
Since water filtration is one of the major issues at Cox’s Bazaar, tube wells offer a natural method.
During the wet-seasons, Cox’s Bazaar witnesses a lot of rainfall.
Rain water seeps into the ground.
It gets filtered naturally through the layers of earth and sand.
This filtration also removes bacteria and other chemicals.
And, leaves the water safe for drinking.
Tube wells, then, bring this filtered water up for safe consumption.
Our team is working in Cox’s Bazaar and installing tube wells already.
We are raising funds to install more tube wells.
Because for a population of 900,000 Rohingya People, they need many more tube wells.
It is the wet season in Bangladesh and the earth is soaking up lots of water.
You can join this movement by donating money and spreading the word.
To ensure 100% transparency, we take pictures and videos of the projects for proof. They are shared on our website, Facebook, and Instagram, as needed.
The rest can be shared with you upon request.
We share pictures of our work on social media for those who want to have a look before donating for our causes.
Let’s get to work for Rohingya.
We do not want to keep them waiting.
Donate today to give 900,000 Rohingya People a chance at basic necessities.
