Review for Obat Helpers Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA
I volunteered in late 2017-2018 with OBAT Helpers for approximately 4 months supporting the humanitarian efforts of the Rohingya people in Bangladesh. Their projects included work in the health, shelter and education sector where I met with a hard working and diligent local and international team on the ground pouring in the efforts to build a foundation to fuel long term assistance for the Rohingya community.
OBAT Helpers has a history of creating a solid and trustworthy foundation of empowerment and education at the forefront of their mission that is reflected in their local staff, bringing tools and resources for the community that need it most.
On the ground I witnessed the building of shelters, teacher learning centres and medical posts to support families, women men and children that have been displaced from their homes and have suffered extreme trauma.
They facilitate international and local help from doctors and experts in the humanitarian field to advance their work and I believe part of their strong support by donors is driven by the display of sheer determination to work form a local point of view in mind which was what attracted me to their organisation.
Creating access to free education and medical care, they have created job opportunities and programs to help support those that are in need and I believe as a locally based non profit organisation I would highly recommend supporting their work in any capacity to assist in the long term humanitarian effort there.
