Topic: Team Leader of Cyclone Preparedness Program-CPP Talked About Its Services and The Situation during the COVID-19 Pandemic and Monsoon Rain in Cox's Bazar Migrant Camp
Translation summary: Mohammed Solim, a team leader of the Cyclone Preparedness Program-CPP and the temporary resident of Kutupalong camp# 07 said to VOA Lifeline Program that though CPP stands for Cyclone Preparedness Program it works in different sectors to save people from cyclones, disasters and other incidents in Bangladesh. Like this, the CPP has been working under NGO/Agencies to save people from COVID-19 pandemic through awareness sessions in the camp. There are so many people who do not know about the services of different NGO/Agencies that's why CPP has been helping the people to have access to facilities that is either for the health care, food, shelter repairing materials or any. But the CPP teams have been facing the challenges doing awareness sessions as the area is the largest and they need to go door to door of people in this COVID-19 Pandemic.
In the end, Solim said that land sliding, the number of damaged shelters of the Rohingya are increasing very much in the camp due to torrential rains. The CPP teams have collected and submitted the list of families whose shelters have been destroyed to the Camp-In-Charge-CIC. So, Bangladesh Rural Advance Committee-BRAC has been providing with shelters repairing materials to these families' as per referral of CIC. Also, Bangladesh Red Crescent Society-BDRCS provided people with ropes as per CPP’s list submission as well.

Topic: Rohingya parents in the camp should focus more on their children’s healthy development-
Translation summary: Parents are responsible to look after their children growing up healthy. NGO and INGOs have been providing nutrient foods to the family those who have children to avoid malnutrition. But many parents don’t use them and sell them instead.
Mamunur Rashid, a Rohingya from Leda camp is currently working at Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) as a volunteer. He said,” Most parents are not still aware of the importance of nutrient food. They receive packets of nutrient food for their children, but they sell them to get some extra money. Besides there are different stages of vaccination plan for the children. But many parents think that the vaccine will make their children’s life difficult. Thus, NGOs and INGOs always provide awareness session to the Rohingyas to increase the knowledge. Learning centers are closed due to lockdown and hence children can’t enjoy different activities staying at home in a fenced camp”.
