SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL (SI) is a humanitarian organization that provides aid and assistance to victims of war or natural disaster. Since 1980, the association has concentrated its action on meeting three vital needs – water, food and shelter.

SI opened its mission in Bangladesh at the end of 2007, just after cyclone SIDR had hit the country, implementing an emergency WASH response. In 2009, after the Cyclone Aila, SI provided a wash and shelter response adapted to the evolving needs of beneficiaries.

In 2017, SI implemented several emergency programs focused on emergency water supply and sanitation infrastructures, shelter and NFI kits distributions, Camp coordination and Management and protection.

Moreover, SI has a contingency preparedness plan to quickly and adequately respond to emergencies. Since March 2010, SI has been active in Cox’s Bazar district, one of the most vulnerable areas of Bangladesh in terms of water access.

SI operates through three core stages of intervention, rapid response mechanisms in the aftermath of a disaster or emergency, early recovery/transitional periods and development. In line with the 2019/2020 country strategy, SI is focusing on four key strategic objectives:


  • Responding to the most urgent needs of conflict and disaster affected populations;
  • Strengthening the resilience of vulnerable communities to recurrent shocks;
  • Strengthening communities’ capacities to access resources;

To this end, SI Bangladesh focuses the crux of its work on the WaSH, FSL and DRR sectors with a cross cutting them of integrated protection and resilience.
