Review for Obat Helpers Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA
I was fortunate to spend a month volunteering with OBAT- Humanitarian Assistance Program this last year. I didn't know what to expect going in, and I was floored by the amazing sense of community and teamwork that OBAT exuded. I've worked with various other refugee organizations within Europe, and what really struck me when I volunteered with OBAT in Bangladesh, was their push to truly be grassroots and strengthen the community we were working within. Within the large camp for Rohingya refugees, resources are severely lacking; and during my time with OBAT, the action-oriented nature of the team to start up clinics, schools etc. was amazing and very productive. It was an amazing experience working with the OBAT team; futhermore, I had the chance to experience many of the schools sponsored by OBAT in Chittagong, and never had I experienced a more humbling and motivating experience.
OBAT continues to change lives for Bangladeshis, refugees, and Rohingya refugees. It was such an amazing experience to be a part of, and experience the work OBAT is doing, and the amazing work they are doing to better the world.
