The clinic currently sees close to 2,000 Rohingya patients per week providing primary care, emergency care, free medications, and referrals. We are also working to establish training programs for the local and refugee populations.

It was a memorable trip. Witnessing first-hand the challenges and hardships Rohingya refugees are facing and witnessing the amazing humanitarian work being carried out by so many organizations for these refugees.” – Dr. Abdul, General Practitioner
