Nearly 1.3million Rohingya people are living in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Fleeing from their own country and hometowns to a foreign nation the Rohingya Refugees have no way to receive medical attention. Furthermore, they had very limited access to health care in Myanmar, and the majority did not receive routine vaccinations. The lack of hygienic and sanitary quality in addition to their living conditions greatly increases the probability of disease outbreaks like cholera, diphtheria, which can prove to be deadly to thousands of lives. As a result, the Rohingya people are vulnerable to possibly preventable diseases and it is up to us to make that possible difference.
In collaboration with Basmah Foundation (NGO Reg Number 3160), we established Medical Camp 5 at Camp No 14, Block No M-13 Hakimpara Thaingkhali, Ukhiya, Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh. Every week more than 750 patients are being treated in the medical camps overlooked by 6 to 10 staff members and volunteers. All patients are provided with primary medical care, medicines, urgent care, distributing medicines, health advice, and so on.
This project and all services offered at this medical Centre is approved by Government of Bangladesh NGO Affairs Bureau (Approval Number – 03.07.2666.6188.8.131.52.)
