SECURITY CONTEXT AND LIVING CONDITIONS:
Teknaf is a fisherman town counting more than 150,000 inhabitants and offering minimum services (local restaurants, local shops…) and nice beaches. It is located 2 hours from Cox’s Bazar city. Most of the NGOs working on the Rohingya crisis are located in Cox’s Bazar city; Oxfam, MSF and SI are based in Teknaf.
In Teknaf, expatriates are accommodated in a big new Guest House with minimum standard of living (individual bedroom and bathroom, electricity through generator, running water, cook and cleaner, internet through usb stick). The Guest House is close to the Office.
In Teknaf, expatriates can enjoy some time at the beach or in the market during week end. They also have the possibility to go to Cox’s Bazar city during weekends where they will find western and sea food, and nice restaurants to relax on the beach side. Cox’s Bazar is one of the touristic cities of Bangladesh and easily accessible from Dhaka (half day trip including internal flight).
Teknaf is a very religious and conservative village. The expatriates have to behave respectfully (no alcohol in public places, wearing long and large clothes…). The security situation is relatively quiet even though the arrival of 900 000 refugees in the District increased tension between the refugees and the host communities.
