Bangla Boat

This picture, of what we’ve called ‘Bangla Boat’, was taken on the front beach of Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh in June 2018.  The photo shows local fisherman (and enthusiastic volunteers) pulling one of these fishing vessels up out of the high water mark, after a night’s fishing. These beautifully shaped and crafted boats are well recognized sights by humanitarian staff based in Cox’s Bazar District working in support of the 900,000 or so Rohingya refugees.

A complementary document is the summary of the ‘What Matters?’ humanitarian bulletins.  The latter are produced regularly (in English and Bangla) in Cox’s Bazar, and report on the thoughts, aspirations and concerns of both the Rohingya refugee population, and also the host Bangladeshi communities.
