Our mission is to work for the welfare, support and rehabilitation of indigent, stateless and displaced people. The primary focus is to alleviate the suffering of thousands of stateless people stranded in refugee camps in Bangladesh. Our goal is to provide them with better living conditions, education and economic empowerment.
The year 2014 marks the momentous ten year anniversary of the inception of OBAT Helpers. As I take a moment to reflect at the past ten years, I am filled with overwhelming joy and pride. It has been an incredible journey and I am so grateful to be a part of it.This rewarding journey began when I read an article about the plight of the forgotten Urdu speaking community. It left a deep and lasting impact on me. With the support of family and close friends, I collected $1,700 and made plans to go and visit the camps to adopt a needy family.
