Disaster preparedness and Food Needs for Disadvantaged Communities in Cox’s Bazar
The Ramadan program covered youth who were not only socially, financially, economically and culturally disadvantaged and vulnerable due to poverty, but also live in an area severely affected by natural catastrophes. The beneficiaries of the project were youth aged from 14 to 25, living in the Upazilla of Teknaf, one of the most vulnerable areas of Bangladesh.  The overall aim of this project was to provide iftar and sahur to 120 poor youth in ten villages and at the same time provide training on basic disaster preparedness.  The program ran from in Ramadan 2009, and resulted in the increased awareness of disaster risk reduction and preparedness in affected communities.
