OBAT Canada is a volunteer-based registered charity that embraces a holistic approach in supporting impoverished communities and individuals to break free of the poverty cycle. We support initiatives at home in Canada and in South Asia, where we are committed to providing aid, healthcare, education and economic empowerment to displaced and disadvantaged communities, including Rohingya refugees.


Basic Needs

Can you imagine going to bed worrying how you will feed your children in the morning or hearing the cries of your young ones because they are so hungry?

Education

Education has the power to change the present to shape the future of children and adults alike.

Rohingya Relief

They were forced to leave their homes amid violence. Now the tens of thousands of families and orphans live in squalid camps with an uncertain future.

Clean Water

Lack of clean water causes disease and adds an additional layer of burden and complexity for those trying hard to fight their way out of endemic poverty.

Health

Health interventions relieve pain, give comfort, provide autonomy – and most importantly – save lives.

Local

We fight hunger at home by supporting food banks and initiatives that feed the homeless.

Our ED Atif Godil shares some thoughts about volunteering in the displaced population camps for the very first time... and how his valuable work directly contributed to saving the lives of mothers and their babies! 👶💕

It was the first time in a refugee camp for either of us and it really didn’t take too long for Mehwish and I to become depressed with the conditions we were witnessing...They gave us so much love for nothing more than sitting with them and learning about them.🙏
