Containing COVID-19 in the world’s largest refugee camp: challenge of a lifetime for operations director, Atul Mrong, a former sponsored child
World Vision Bangladesh operations director, Atul Mrong, 43, never ducks a challenge. In his 17-year career, he has managed disaster responses to devastating floods and cyclones in his native Bangladesh. Following the 2015 earthquake that levelled Kathmandu, Atul flew into Nepal to co-lead World Vision’s recovery operations for two years. Today, this former sponsored child is coping with a very different kind of crisis: containing COVID-19 in the world’s largest refugee camp—home to almost 1 million Rohingya refugees.
