Healthcare providers – midwives, doctors, nurses, UNFPA staff and Rohingya volunteers - in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh ensure Rohingya women and girls have the care they need, despite the harsh realities of life in a refugee camp.
They deliver sensitive and supportive care to women who want access to family planning, who need counseling after experiencing gender-based violence, and who are pregnant and need prenatal and safe birth care.
However, working on the frontlines of health crises can be tiring. Staff are exposed to the suffering of others, endure their own emotional trauma, experience the stress of working in a resource scarce environment, and the cope daily with the uncertainties of a humanitarian disaster.
This Valentine’s Day, show your love for those who provide care to Rohingya refugees. Send them a note explaining how much you value their work.
Friends of UNFPA will then hand-deliver your note to frontline care providers in Cox’s Bazar.
