Working With Refugees

In the face of adversity, compassion has the power to transform lives and sow the seeds of positive change. Global Unnayan Seba Sangstha (GUSS) exemplifies this truth through its unwavering commitment to providing aid, hope, and a new beginning to Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals (FDMN) – the Rohingya refugees. In partnership with organizations like BRAC, Muslim Aid USA, Bangladesh Regeneration Trust UK (BRTUK), and many more, GUSS has not only extended a helping hand to these refugees but has also embarked on a journey of learning, growth, and empowerment.

Extending a Helping Hand

The Rohingya refugee crisis, stemming from the persecution faced by the Rohingya population in Myanmar, remains one of the most pressing humanitarian challenges of our time. In the midst of this crisis, GUSS has emerged as a beacon of hope for thousands of FDMN refugees. With projects in Cox’s Bazar and Bhasan Char Island – the main two locations housing FDMN refugees in Bangladesh– GUSS has tirelessly worked to alleviate their suffering and restore their dignity.

A Partnership for Change

GUSS’s impact is magnified through strategic collaborations with organizations that share its vision of a better world. Muslim Aid USA, BRTUK, and BRAC are only three among many esteemed partners that have joined hands with GUSS in this noble mission. Together, these organizations have formed a formidable alliance that transcends boundaries, cultural differences, and challenges. It is through this partnership that tangible change is achieved, one step at a time.
