Over a million Rohingyas are now living in overcrowded refugee camps and makeshift shelters in Bangladesh. Denied clean water and sanitation, conditions are dire and disease outbreaks are deadly. Over 95% of refugees in Cox's Bazaar are drinking contaminated water, risking Cholera and acute diarrhea. Three out of four don't have enough food, and malnutrition is particularly high among children. For many this is life-threatening and they are in urgent need of medical aid.
Global One is raising money to set up medical clinics for Rohingya refugees. We will build and equip ten medical clinics to provide emergency treatment, immunisations, and maternal health care. We will treat the three-quarters of children under 5 suffering acute malnutrition and stem the outbreaks of contagious diseases. We will help the 130 women who are giving birth every day without medical aid and we will educate the refugees about health and hygiene management.
We will reach 250 refugees in each clinic every day that they are open. That means each clinic will serve more than 60,000 refugees per year. Whether ensuring health childbirth, immunising babies and children to prevent the spread of disease, or treating malnutrition, our clinic will save lives and vastly improve the quality of life to those we reach. With your help, we can make a real and lasting difference.
