The Rohingya refugees had very limited access to health care in Myanmar, and the majority did not receive routine vaccinations. This makes them highly vulnerable to preventable diseases. The lack of clean water and sanitation is especially dangerous. The conditions the Rohingya are living in greatly increase the probability of disease outbreaks like cholera, diphtheria, which would threaten thousands of lives.
We in collaboration with Basmah Foundation established a medical camp at Camp 14, Block 18 Hakimpara, Ukhiya, Cox’s bazaar, Bangladesh. Every week more than 350 patients are treated in the medical camps. All patients are provided free medical care, medicines, primary care, emergency care, distributing medicines, health advice, and so much more.
Volunteers from our partner organization Basmah Foundation (Government of Bangladesh NGO Affairs Bureau Registration Number – 3160) help in running day-to-day operations of this medical Centre. This project and all services offered at this medical Centre is approved by Government of Bangladesh NGO Affairs Bureau (Approval Number – 03.07.2666.6126.96.36.199.)
