GO-MAD NOV’18, BANGLADESH

Thank you for participating in our Nov’2018 Bangladesh Deployment!

The deployment supported displaced Rohingya women and children in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh. The deployment was from 5th-9th November. Volunteers had the opportunity to contribute to Global One’s projects in Bangladesh in a number of ways, including distributing our Box for Life, Dignity kits, trauma counselling, assisting in our four health posts, and leading activities in Child friendly zones.

Our vision statement

Following the goals of previous successful deployments, this 2018 deployment aims to improve the physical, mental and emotional well-being of a persecuted minority. Global One aims to develop effective and innovative ways to provide support for Rohingya refugees, specifically in relation to childbirth, restoring dignity and empowerment for women and children.

Our mission statement

Global One’s ongoing mission for the Bangladesh deployments is to assist the Global One Bangladesh Office in their local projects. As the demand or necessities differ, so will the work of the volunteers. The mission is predominantly to ensure displaced Rohingya women and children are supported in their most intimate needs, therefore the main focus of our projects will remain with the distribution of Dignity Kits, Boxes for Life, providing mammography clinics and trauma counselling, to name but a few.

Here are a few short clips to give you an idea of the work the participants were involved as part of the Global One volunteer team!
