In addition to providing emergency, agricultural, health and educational assistance, CRS and our local Church partners provide programs in peacebuilding and conflict resolution. In the United States, we raise awareness among Catholics to fund critical projects. Against all odds, the election is peaceful and South Sudan gains independence.

The work included teacher training, since most teachers lacked many basic skills, provision of school supplies such as textbooks and notebooks, and rehabilitation of latrines and clean water provision, which can improve school enrollments. In South Sudan, only 10 percent of children complete Primary school. In July/August 2016, the water and sanitation work took on added importance. However, fatal outbreaks of cholera broke out, especially in Juba due to large-scale displacements which resulted in huge numbers of people living in unsanitary camp conditions. Some 5000 cases have been reported with over 100 fatalities, and the outbreak has not yet been brought under control. CRS, with funding from Latter-day Saints Charities worth $350,000, carried out the rehabilitation of disused boreholes and built new ones, cleaned out pit latrines and refurbished them, built new blocks of latrines, set up multiple hand-washing stations and established school health clubs to share hygiene messaging, not just in school but to entire families and communities when the children are at home. Students wash their hands at a block of hand washing stations and a water supply tank installed by CRS.

Shetara, left, is a midwife and mother. She shares her story with Yasmine Farjana, right, a Caritas Bangladesh volunteer. She says: “My cousin was killed because she was pregnant. She couldn’t run fast enough. They set her house on fire. She wouldn’t leave without getting her son out of the house. They first poured the gas and then set it on fire. I cry for them both, but I cry for her son because I took care of him. I delivered him. I named him. I still dream of him. I was inspired to be a midwife because it is a blessing if I can save the mother and child together. When I see a new life come to Earth, I feel very joyful. It is a gift from God to bring a life into the world.”

From Huwaikong, Shetara has 2 children – a daughter and a son, between 5 and 10 years old—and is a midwife. “My cousin was killed because she was pregnant – she couldn’t run fast enough. They set her house on fire and she wouldn’t leave without getting her son out of the house. They first poured the petrol and then set it on fire. I cry for her son because I took care of him. I delivered him (as a midwife). I named him. I still dream of him. I was inspired to be a midwife because it is a blessing if I can save the mother and child together. When I see a new life come to Earth, I feel very joyful. It is a gift from God to bring a life into the world,” says Shetara. Shetara received food—lentils, cooking oil, salt and sugar—earlier that day from Caritas at a food distribution in Monyarghona camp. At the distribution, complementary bags of rice were also provided by the World Food Program. Caritas Bangladesh provides relief assistance to Rohingya refugees across camps in Cox Bazar. Emergency support includes an immediate two-month supply of food rations and kitchen supplies for 10,000 families (nearly 70,000 people), with plans for ongoing food assistance, including emergency shelter, living supplies, water and sanitation, protection social services, and potentially the design and infrastructure support for new camps. Shetara talked about how she delivered her cousin, Senowar’s, baby just 2 hours after they arrived by boat into Bangladesh, in early August. It was a harrowing scenario. “We had just come by boat and arrived at the Bangladesh border. I was very frightened because I knew the baby was coming. When Senowar said she was feeling pain, I told her that she needed to rest immediately, that the baby was going to come in two hours. We were passing by a villager’s home and some people nearby offered tarps, which got ready, along with some hot water, outside. And, there, I delivered her son. I didn’t have any blade or anything so I found a bamboo strip and I sharpened it and was able to cut the cord. When you have a bamboo strip and you break it, it becomes thinner and sharp. I wish I could have had a needle, thread, globes, bandages, cloth, soap and a towel, but I didn’t have any of these things. And then after the baby was born, I was so relieved, and happy—the baby had made it. Since arriving in the camp, I have delivered three more babies. I hope someone well employ me here to be a midwife. I would love to work as a midwife or with children.” Says Senowara: “I delivered my son outside a villager’s home, two hours after crossing by boat into Bangladesh. It was in the afternoon and I lay on black tarps that are used for salt making. I felt shame because the whole delivery should be inside, but this was outside, and they just covered the place with tarps so some people were looking. Because my cousin Shetara was with me, I was not that afraid. The shame – that was something else. I was screaming a lot. They didn’t have proper bandaging so I bled through my clothes for two days. It was very shameful.” Adds Shetara: “It’s helpful that I’m getting food and water supply here in this camp, and that I can also stay with my relatives. For this, I am grateful. Good water, food and my family. We are getting what we need but we would like to go back to our country of origin in peace. I am in peace because there is no military here so I will not get killed.” As of October 2017, 700,000 Rohingya Muslims had fled as refugees Bangladesh, with reports of escaping violent conflict in their villages and towns. Boats cross the Naf river with families, children, the elderly, and people who have spent significant funds to pay for the crossing. The needs of refugees from Myanmar are dire—with people arriving hungry, exhausted, and depleted of any resources. Many have faced horrific torture and lost loved ones, including children, in the violence. Their journey to Bangladesh often involved fleeing a direct attack, seeing or watching their houses burn, hiding in the brush as they made their escape over several days and nights, going without food, and crossing streams filled with bodies. The human needs—emotional and physical—are immense.

At Shabrang Harbor in Teknaf, at the Bangladesh border, newly arrived refugees leave boats from Myanmar and walk to register as refugees, carrying nothing but their children. The refugees, escaping violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, are arriving at a rate of 20,000 a day. It is estimated that more than 400,000 have fled since violence erupted, joining hundreds of thousands of Rohingya already in Bangladesh.
