Bamboo durability center has been set up to build strong houses for Rohingyas, in Kutupalong, Cox’s Bazar.
In a press release, the center was inaugurated by the UN refugee agency-UNHCR and BRAC on Saturday morning in Rohtiga camp-4 extension in Kutupalong.
In order to provide shelter to two hundred and forty thousand Rohingya families in Cox’s Bazar district, a bamboo temporary shelter center was constructed under the government’s directive, which created huge pressure on the local environment. A survey of organizations working to provide shelter and non-food and humanitarian assistance to Rohingyas has been reported that so far, 20 million bamboos have been used to build shelters.
Due to this huge bamboo use, the quality bamboo is not available right now. Currently, the immature bamboo is available, it will be changed in just two years. So this Bamboo Dust Management Plant has been set up.
Refugees, Relief and Rehabilitation Commission chief Abul Kalam inaugurated the center. Present at the meeting was attended by UNHCR’s Chief Executive Marin Dean Kazdamakaj and Head of Humanitarian Assistance Program of BRAC in Cox’s Bazar. Abdus Salam
