Food Charity Restores Dignity to the Forgotten Rohingya Children

BRADFORD, U.K. - April 6, 2016 - PRLog -- A Bradford based charity is taking on a new project to provide school meals to six schools in Bangladesh who are educating Rohingya refugees. 634 refugee children living in Chittagong will receive nourishing school meals from Charity Right every school day for the next 12 months.

The new project will serve Rohingya children who with their families escaped internal conflict in Burma and are now living in Bangladesh, however they still face an uncertain future. Thousands of children who did not receive any basic education in Burma are at risk of becoming trapped in a cycle of poverty.

Sajad Mahmood, CEO of Charity Right UK, says: "There are so many stories about refugees in the news at the moment, it's easy to see why the Rohingya are being overlooked. Thankfully, organisations like ours can offer the forgotten Rohingya children new hope through food and education".

Having delivered over 3 million meals to marginalised school children in 5 countries, the Chittagong project is the first of many new school meal project to be announced by Charity Right in 2016.

Sajad Mahmood continues: 'We know food nourishes the mind and helps to keep poorer children in school, but it also has a bigger role to play. At Charity Right, we have seen how sharing school meals in a safe and friendly environment can help to restore a child's dignity as well as build happy childhood memories most of us take for granted."

Charity Right hopes to make the biggest impact by specifically working in hard to reach communities where other charities may not operate. Many other school projects are in need of support.
