Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières MSF.
On behalf of Doctors Without Borders (MSF), I visited the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, the largest refugee camp in the world. Since 2017, almost one million people have been living in an area where there used to be large forests and a few small villages. It is a challenging situation not only for the refugees, but also for the people who have been living there for a long time.
In the northernmost part of Laos, next to the border with China, tea grows on centuries old trees and not, as is usal, on bushes. I visited the tea farmers in Phongsaly for Helvetas.
Incited by radical American evangelists, political leaders in Uganda intended to introduce the death penalty for homosexuality. This was only prevented thanks to international pressure. But still, homosexuality is illegal in Uganda, like in many other African countries. The law is exceptionally harsh: People 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 programme. After that they can find a job or start their own business more easily. I visited this project on behalf of the Swiss development organisation Helvetas in 2017.
One year after the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, I visited the little village of Marbu at the foot of the Himalaya. The two earthquakes in 2015 destroyed Marbu completely. Helvetas supported the villagers with building new and earthquake resilient houses.
People with HIV and Aids in Zimbabwe can get free treatment at the Ruedi Lüthy Foundation's Newlands Clinic in Harare. I've visited the clinic and its patients several times the last years.Office: Patrick Rohr Kommunikation GmbH
