    The comforts of home for women in need

    Day 99

    A Cup of Tea

    Tea is such an important part of Rohingya culture. But because Rohingya communities have been uprooted from their lives, they don’t have the means or ability to get it.

    We wanted to bring back a little bit of normalcy and tradition, to help them feel some comfort during tough times.

    So we set about getting one gift bag for one woman in each household in one community – filled with tea!

    We got everything these women would need to make and have tea – sugar, milk, and a cup. And all of it went into a shoulder bag, hoping it would be useful to the women moving forward as well.

    “I used to drink tea, so this is very important,” said Jushna, a member of the community.

    “Before I drank tea everyday,” said Amina, another neighbor. “I like this gift very much.”

    We wanted to show some love and support to everyone in this community. To give a small moment of comfort, a reminder of home, as they work to regain stability and get back on their feet.
