The Mahalchari Humanitarian Assistance Project aims to assist more than 400 families in the Chittagong Hill Tracts to rebuild homes and lives that were devastated in the outbreak of violence on August 26th 2003.

The families all live in one of nine communities that were attacked when tensions over land erupted. The Government and NGOs were quick to respond with emergency food and medical assistance.

Meanwhile the United Nations (UN) fielded a mission to assess the long-term recovery needs of the nine communities.

Thanks to assistance from ECHO, Australia, Denmark, the United Kingdom the UN, lead by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), are now delivering a programme of assistance based on the needs identified by the mission. Already food and seeds for planting have been distributed, along with clothing and irrigation pumps. Houses and community facilities will also be rebuilt with help from the project.

The project will run for eight months. Health care and counseling will also be provided to help the communities recover fully.
