Arakan, Bangladesh 18.03.2021

IHH has constructed a total of 9.890 houses for families in need since 2017.

The bamboo homes are constructed according to the weather conditions in the region and provide the Arakan refugee families with protection against the monsoon rains and extreme heat.

In addition, IHH also completes the pavements, steps and green areas; and organizes rubbish collection in regions where these homes are built. Since the crisis began IHH managed to obtain official authorization from relevant Bangladesh state departments and subsequently constructed 9.890 bamboo houses.


They were selected as ‘Model homes’

UN’s International Organization for Migration (IMO) designated these bamboo homes as sample homes for NGOs carrying out aid efforts in the region.

IHH aid project for the Arakan people has been going on since 1996. The support of our donors means the continuation of our effort in helping them.
