Abdullah Ucak, Bangladesh coordinator for the Turkiye Diyanet Foundation, said that the solar systems were distributed to refugees in the Kutupalong Rohingya camp in the Cox’s Bazar district.
The border district in southeastern Bangladesh near Myanmar is hosting some 1 million Rohingya refugees, including over 650,000 who fled attacks on the minority Muslim community starting late last August.
Ucak said the solar packages include three energy-saving lamps, a solar panel, and a charger.
The Diyanet Foundation will distribute a total of 2,000 solar panel systems as part of its humanitarian support to the devastated community, Ucak added.
He said the group has been doing aid work in the camps, including digging wells and sanitation systems and building mosques and shelters for the Rohingya.
“We have built four mosques, six bridges, and four deep-tube wells on the ‘Turkish hill’ in the Kutupalong camp,” he said, adding that they also launched a project to build 120 bamboo shelter centers in the area.
The group also distributes food and hygienic supplies to refugees on a daily basis.
