Co-founder John Sloan: Getting started in Bangladesh

John has been following the plight of the Rohingya for some years and when there was yet another exodus in August this year he became very keen to help. In September we were lucky to meet a team of experienced people who wanted to join us and he has just returned from 2 weeks in Bangladesh getting us started.

We talk candidly about how you go about helping in a sudden acute crisis with over a million refugees, the challenges, the other organisations out there and what our role can be.

It is of course impossible to help everybody but we have found a camp of 6000 people and as this podcast goes out we will be doing our first distribution of fruit and vegetables, specifically focussing on the under 5s.
