An estimated 850,000 Rohingya people of Myanmar have been displaced and are unable to return to their homes since communal violence erupted there in August 2017. They have sought shelter in neighboring Bangladesh and are putting up in makeshift camps. Most of them are the elderly, women and children and they urgently need food and water, reasonable shelter and basic health cover. U.N. and Bangladesh government resources are limited and NGOs are augmenting in the much-needed emergency aid.
IMANA Medical Relief is sending its medical relief teams under the umbrella of FIMA (Federation of Islamic Medical Associations) in coordination with local partners. Our volunteer doctors are traveling to Bangladesh to provide critically needed healthcare to the Rohingya refugees via mobile clinic outreach to the makeshift refugee camps. IMR teams have rotated weekly to the Rohingya camps; they have treated 286,928 patients as of September 2019.
We need your help to keep providing this critically needed healthcare cover to the destitute, displaced Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.
