Review for Obat Helpers Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

OBAT Helpers Inc has given me an invaluable experience and insights into the lives and living conditions of the refugees in Cox's Bazaar. It was a platform where I was given the opportunity for a first-hand interaction with the refugees. I was also given the chance to contribute to the refugee community in areas of education and journalism. Once the COVID situation eases up, I am looking forward to visiting the camp again under OBAT, and tap on other areas to lift the hardships faced by these living individuals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Work out ways to secure longer duration of camp-pass for volunteers and partner with wider range of relevant government/ non-government agencies to solidify plans for long-term purposes until the refugee issues are solved.

Review for Obat Helpers Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I was with OBAT for about month, aiding especially in areas within the educational and reporting scenes. OBAT is a true performing non-profit organization in every sense. Every one whom I've crossed paths with in the OBAT House and the OBAT players in the field are passionate individuals who invest their energy and time tirelessly to help alleviate the pain that the Rohingyas are facing. Every individual under OBAT that I have chanced upon, or even spoken to in length, has displayed great humanitarian values and drive in ensuring that while the Rohingyas are residing in the temporary shelters, they are provided with platforms for maximising their time and capacity to better themselves for the sake of their own future well-being.
Apart from that, I'd definitely recommend OBAT to anyone who has the heart to reach out to the Rohingyas because the organization provides a sense of flexibility for volunteers to give in ways that are relevant to their expertise, experience and comfort levels.
The transparency and the sense of homeliness that I have experienced myself in OBAT have given me hope and a sense of assurance that the lives of these displaced and unfortunate people are in good hands.
