Review for Obat Helpers Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Obat Helpers is truly an exceptional nonprofit organization. There is no other group who works so close to the ground day in and day out to help refugees in need. I worked with the group in the Kutupalong camp last summer and was inspired by how much passion was present. The staff and volunteers are such great people and they work tirelessly for the communities. Humanitarian projects may often be criticized as unsustainable, but until global justice is achieved, organizations like obat remind me that compassion is real and that even in the worse of times, there are wonderful people dedicating their lives to helping others and making conditions more livable. As a summer volunteer, I learned so much from this group. They built me into their daily routine, and gave me the opportunity to make use of my skills rather than bureaucratic busywork. I will take the lessons I learned from my time with obat with me through the rest of my life.

Review for Obat Helpers Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My summer with OBAT has taught me the fundamentals of true, honest, and ethically sustainable humanitarian work, and forever changed my life. In the course of my summer here, I have met the most amazing people from both the Rohingya camps and the local Bangladeshi communities. I have participated on hands-on projects in the education and health sectors, and worked with refugees to produce social media and journalistic content to raise global awareness. OBAT cuts out all the bureaucratic hierarchies and headaches of non-profit and advocacy work, and places you in a position where you can make a real and direct impact on the live of others. This opportunity has been wonderfully rewarding, and has shown me, a graduating college senior soon headed into the real world, what an unwavering commitment to humanity looks like.
