Rohingya women in refugee camps face significant health challenges due to inadequate access to nutritional food. Insufficient dietary diversity and limited availability of essential nutrients contribute to malnutrition, compromising their well-being. Addressing this issue requires targeted interventions to improve food security and promote nutritional education within the unique context of refugee camps.
Amal Foundation’s this initiative aimed to empower Rohingya women in refugee camps by providing them with the means to grow their own food, improve their nutritional intake, and potentially generate income through the sale of surplus produce. Amal provided vegetable seeds to the Rohingya women in refugee camps. As a result, Rohingya women were able to use the vegetable seeds to grow their own gardens. Families, as a result of cultivating their gardens, could purchase healthy food. Additionally, families could potentially have surplus produce that they could sell for profit.
The cultivation of these gardens presumably resulted in the families having access to healthier food options and by cultivating their own gardens, families could potentially have surplus produce that they could sell for profit.
