Nearly 1.3 million Rohingya people are living in congested makeshift camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. This massive number of Rohingya people fled from their own country Myanmar fearing their lives from the state persecution and horrific violence to Bangladesh.
Furthermore, they had limited access to health care back in Myanmar. The majority did not receive routine vaccinations. The lack of hygienic and sanitary quality to their living conditions makes them highly vulnerable to diseases and outbreaks like cholera, pneumonia, and diphtheria, which prove to be deadly.
BASMAH has established Medical Clinics at Camp 26, Block H2, West Leda in Tekna, and Camp 14 and near camp -13 in Ukhia in Cox’s Bazar district in Bangladesh.
Every day hundreds of Rohingya patients- women, men, children and elderly are provided with free essential medical care, free medicines, urgent care, health advice, and so on. BASMAH medical clinics also introduced free dental care and are equipped with modern equipment for the services.
BASMAH Medical clinics are run by 5 doctors and 15 support staff members and volunteers. The medical project is approved by the Government of Bangladesh’s NGO Affairs Bureau.
