In late August 2017, hundreds of thousands of the Rohingya people of Myanmar fled for their lives, leaving behind their homes as they burned to the ground following attacks on their villages. Much time has passed, but the Rohingya continue to be displaced and destitute as they occupy what is now known as the world’s largest refugee camp, and the potential for crises multiply as floods and monsoons threaten their makeshift housing. IMANA Medical Relief (IMR) has been sending weekly teams providing critically-needed health care via mobile clinic outreach and static clinics. Thanks to our volunteers and donors, IMR has sent 24 teams treating over 90,000 patients since the project’s launch in December 2017. The humanitarian and healthcare needs for this community show no signs of ending. The global network of relief organizations needs continual funding as the Rohingya are 100 percent dependent on international aid. With your support, we can continue to send lifesaving medical care and provide hope to this community for a better future.
