Rohingya crisis | "Providing water for nearly one million people"

Water and sanitation expert Ryan Bellingham was sent to Bangladesh shortly after the crisis erupted as part of MSF’s emergency response.

In situations like this, MSF first responds to the immediate medical needs, providing treatment for injuries, caring for expectant mothers or feeding malnourished children. But very quickly, other needs start to arise.

As well as food and shelter, people need access to clean water and latrines. That’s where Ryan and the water and sanitation teams come in. Read Ryan's story to find out more about his time in Bangladesh.

If you would like to help our work providing vital medical care for the Rohingya, please consider giving to our Rohingya appeal.
