Review for Obat Helpers Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA
I had the honor and privledge to learn about Obat Helpers and the impactful work they are doing through my friend who invited me to take a trip with her to Bangladesh. Its was one of the best experiences of my life! Thanks to this this trip I got to learn about the Bihari people and their plight, and I got to see how through Obat Helpers, Bihari refugees are given the opportunity to an education and a future out of poverty. Obat helpers is a one of kind organization that empowers refugees to empower their selves through teaching them communication skills, how to speak English, and a wide range of leaderships skills, as well as teaches the power of giving back. It was so impactful to see how the youth are taking charge of their own futures by pursuing an education and careers. Obat Helpers fosters community and respect for everyone's ideas. My favorite part was to see hear about the growth of each and everyone of the youth we met. It was inspiring to see young girls leading projects and not being afraid to voice their dreams! In addition to serving the Bihari refugees, Obat Helpers does critical work in the Rohingya refugee campps. Along with other partners they help fund the Prantic Health Clinic that serves thousands of Rohingya refugees a week under difficult circumstances such as limited staff and supplies. The clinic staff and medical team are true angels! I am a proud supporter of Obat Helpers and look forward to continuing to support this organization and their mission.
