Education and humanitarian assistance in Bangladesh

We work in Bangladesh to help communities in both rural and urban parts of the country.

ActionAid supports the most marginalised women and children by helping them access education, protect themselves from violence and increase their resilience to the effects of climate change.

We also work with Rohingya refugees in Cox's Bazar providing them with essential aid such as solar street lights, hygiene kits, water and sanitation. Find out more about our work in Bangladesh.

Emergency response and support in occupied Palestinian territory

ActionAid works in the occupied Palestinian territory providing humanitarian assistance.

Ongoing conflict and poverty have had a devastating effect on the region. ActionAid has been operating in the occupied Palestinian territory since 2014. We have been providing humanitarian aid, psychosocial and economic support to help women and children in Gaza and the West Bank.

Most recently we have worked with partners to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic in the region providing food and sanitation packs.
