“We are all working round the clock to ensure testing is available to refugees...Those who are identified as COVID-19 positive have adequate facilities in place to care for them & to ensure contact tracing & isolation of those who may have been exposed.”
Refugees are at the centre of the response in Cox's Bazar
They protect their communities, not only from COVID-19 but also extreme weather including cyclones & monsoon
Volunteers like Shoaib & Afmida work tirelessly raising awareness #CPP
