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 USA (Bangladesh American Society of Muslim Aid for Humanity) established a medical camp at Camp 14, Block E-5 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.
Our partner organization BASMAH USA grant us funds which 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 – 03.07.2666.6220.127.116.11.)
