Summary

This project will treat poor diabetic patients of Gaibandha district in northern Bangladesh.It is one of the poorest district of Bangladesh and it has a high concentration of diabetic patients. If these patients are treated and educated properly the disease can be controlled and they may be able to lead normal lives and be useful to their families. Patients will be treated at our Karmirhath Hospital in Gaibandha town. Diabetic patients are being treated in this hospital since 1996.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There is a big concentration of diabetic patients in the district, but there is no affordable facility for treatment. The people being very poor can not afford treatment that is available. Once affected, diabetic is a life-long disease. If not properly treated, the affected patients gradually become invalid & incapable of doing anything and thus become liability to their families. But, if treated properly, these people can lead a normal life and be useful to their families.

How will this project solve this problem?

We are running a small charitable hospital (Karmirhath Hospital) at Gaibandha having facilities for treating Diabetic, Eye and Pediatrics patients. Each of these wings of the hospital are well equipped with modern equipments, thanks to our generous donors overseas. We have also qualified and trained doctors for each wing. With financial help we are in a position to give quality services to the poor patients. Our "Restore Eye Sights to 500 Bangladeshis" on GlobalGiving Site is a big success

Potential Long Term Impact

We will treat 1,200 diabetic patients so that their diseases remain under control and also educate them how to conduct their lives in a normal way. These people will be able to lead almost normal life and be able to contribute to their family needs.
