Over half a million Rohingya refugees have arrived in Bangladesh since 25 August 2017, due to ongoing violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar. The Department of Disaster Management (DDM) is responding to the crisis, and in doing so has requested support from 10 graduates of the Humanitarian Trainee Scheme (HTS) and Context programmes, run by the Talent Development project of the Disasters and Emergencies Preparedness Programme. Seven were deployed on 25th September and the remaining three on 1st October.
In this piece, the seven graduates share their experiences of deployment and offer some reflections on the situation.
