Water For Rohingya Refugees - Help Needed
I bring your attention to the CAI water projects for 39,000 Rohingya refugees rotting in squalor camps outside Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh.
Two deepwater wells, two massive pumps, 28 massive storage tanks, and a network of distribution pipes bring pure potable drinking and daily-use water to these hapless people 24×7, 365 days a year. CAI has enough funds to see the distribution of this live-sustaining project through December 31, 2020. It takes US$36,000 a year to run these services, which includes diesel to pump the water, pump and pipe maintenance, and the labor to maintain these services.
It would be unconscionable to stop this project just due to the unavailability of funds so CAI is appealing to donors to please help. This will be the best gift we can offer to Imam Hussein (a) and the shuhadaas of Karbala.

They escaped to Mazaar for safety but without anything to fall back on for survival. CAI has drilled a deep water well for them and provided supplemental food for them as well. Sharing a few photos:
