It was through Obat Helpers Inc. staff, Professor John Clark and Saima Hassan, Director of Development and Communications that I learned about the plight of thousands of stateless people stranded in refugee camps in Bangladesh. I was impressed about how geared up they were when I was informed of the efforts being put to address the living conditions, education and economic empowerment of these populations.

I worked with the president of OBAT Helpers to coordinate the first San Francisco Bay Area event held on April 9, 2016. The organization was able to get very high quality speakers that were flown in from the East Coast and Midwest for a panel discussion that was very informative and in-depth for the audience members who had very little exposure to this crisis. The volunteer team that helped to put on the event was also very committed to its success and a lot of planning and work went into creating a very successful initial event for this region. I hope to see this turn into an annual event so that the improving conditions of the stateless people in Bangladesh can continue to be front and center in the minds of the Bay Area residents and they too can work with OBAT Helpers to hasten the closing of the camps.

I have seen this beautiful organization grow from its inception to what it is today, watching on the sidelines as a donor and I have to say, I'm amazed at the integrity, growth and difference this organization has made in the last 10+ years. I have witnessed and seen the lives changed, empowered and inspired by the programs this organization runs. I will continue to support as a donor and one-day as a volunteer to the best of my ability. Until then, i continue to watch on the sidelines and become inspired and awed at the wonderful work OBAT has enabled.

Our student organization reached out to have some of the partners from OBAT Helpers come and speak to our members about the displaced persons in Bangladesh. We were excited to have them visit, but the presentation exceeded our expectations. Saima Hassan, Katie Basbagill, and John Clark we're thoughtful, affable, informative and engaging. It was a truly enriching experience for our members and we are grateful that they took the time to share their message with us.

OBAT has a very practical and powerful approach towards helping humanity. They are taking one step at a time and moving forward very quickly.I am sure their support is creating positive changes in the lives of people who have been helped and those people will take the torch and bring light to more families around them. The Education/School and Micro financing Projects are the best.
