Volunteer Opportunities With Rohingya


I am currently in Dhaka on a NVR Visa. I have been having trouble finding information on how I can personally help Rohingya crisis, versus just sending money. I have some time and I would love to spend it volunteering there with a safe organization. Can anyone assist and connect me with a group?

I am in Paris at the moment and I was wondering if there is a way to do volunteer work at one of the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh for one month, who I can contact etc. Thank you

Hello Matthews J,

I would request you to donate money instead of volunteering. If anyone is interested to help the uprooted Rohingya people, please donate your funds to well reputed organizations like the UNHCR:-


With regards to volunteering, the best option would be to contact NGOs (Non Government Organisations) in Bangladesh. However, it is unlikely that you will get any offers because there are sufficient volunteers. At present, medical professionals and translators who speak the Rohnigya language are required. Most Bangladeshis do not understand the Rohnigya language. You can also try going solo like the following people did. Watch the experiences of solo tourists who also visited the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh recently:-

Hope this helps!

You can go there directly, you will find NGO's working there. You should try to contact them about your issues. Here is another NGO. https://charity4peace.wordpress.com/ it also works for people.
