Rohingya C Patrick Rohr May 2018 59

In May 2018, I spent two weeks in the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. One million people live in the world's largest refugee camp. They have no hope since they can't go back to their home country - and can not stay in Bangladesh. Where should they go? See here the pictures I took for Helvetas, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and Swiss Solidarity.



In the northernmost part of Laos, next to the border to China, tea grows on centuries old trees and not, as usal, on bushes. I visited the the tea farmers in Phongsaly for Helvetas.

One year after the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, I visited the little village Marbu at the foot of the Himalaya. The two earthquakes in 2015 destroyed Marbu completely. Helvetas supported the villagers in building new and earthquake resilient houses.



People with HIV and Aids in Zimbabwe can get a free treatment at Ruedi Lüthy Foundation's Newlands Clinic in Harare. During several stays in Zimbabwe, I visited many patients of the clinic.



Incited by radical American evangelists, political leaders in Uganda intended to install death penalty for homosexuality. Only international pressure dodged this. But still, homosexuality is illegal in Uganda, like in many other African countries. The law is exceptionally harsh: Men and women who get caught in a homosexual act face up to 20 years in jail. Related parties and landlords who don’t denounce known LGBTI persons to the government are sentenced to seven years in prison. I travelled to Uganda on behalf of the foundation Rainbow Support Network.



Thanks to the SKY project, young people in Ethiopia learn professional skills in a three-month training. After that training, they can easier find a job or start their own business. I visited this project on behalf of the Swiss development organisation Helvetas in 2017.
