Support Rohingya Refugees

The Rohingya people have faced decades of systematic discrimination, statelessness and targeted violence in Myanmar. Such persecution has forced Rohingya women, girls, boys and men into Bangladesh for many years. Yet it was August 2017 that triggered by far the largest and fastest refugee influx into Bangladesh. Since then, an estimated 745,000 Rohingya—including more than 400,000 children—have fled into Cox’s Bazar.

In Myanmar, entire villages were burned to the ground, families were separated and killed. Most of the people who escaped were severely traumatized after witnessing unspeakable atrocities. These people found temporary shelter in refugee camps around Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, which is now home to the world’s largest refugee camp. The living conditions in these camps are grim with lack of sanitation and medical facilities, extreme overcrowding, and poor water quality.

MedGlobal Health Post in Camp-24 is the only Health Post in that camp where 27,360 Rohingya refugees live. The health post also serves the local Bangladeshi populations living nearby, totalling about 1500 patients per month. This HP must remain operational to continue providing primary healthcare services.

Over the last year, our MBC centre has become a game-changer for Rohingya refugees. 90% of pregnant women in this community used to deliver at home, but now we’ve been able to reach 45%. MedGlobal provides a full range of maternity care through this center, including daily health care awareness sessions.

Without your support we will be forced to shut down these center’s that are a life line for Rohingya refugees.

Support Rohingya Refugees

Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh have faced ethnic cleansing, forced displacement, and the COVID-19 pandemic in the world’s largest and most densely concentrated refugee camp. The living conditions are grim, with lack of sanitation and medical facilities, and a recent fire destroyed hundreds of huts, displaced nearly 50,000 people, and burned down several health facilities. 

MedGlobal has been working in Bangladesh since 2017, providing innovative and accessible healthcare services for Rohingya refugees, building local health capacity, and offering training and education for health workers. In response to COVID-19, we worked closely with our partners OBAT Helpers and Prantic to supply our clinic with medication, supplies, medical equipment, and over 62,000 items of PPE to protect our health workers and their patients. We also built the first central oxygen line at Ukhia Upazila Health Complex in Cox’s Bazar, which will serve COVID-19 patients in dire need of oxygen.

In addition to our COVID-19 response, we recently opened a Maternity & Birthing Center, which will serve 4,000 new mothers, and launched an emergency medical response to the devastating fire that tore through the camps on March 22.
