Summary

The Rohingya refugee crisis has shown no sign of a solution to the problem since its outbreak in 2017. In a three-month, a million Rohingya refugees were brought in. There are many problems with too many people in the narrow areas. The biggest problem in the protracted Rohingya refugee is the lack of nutrition and medical care for children and women. We intend to provide health education support and medical services for children and women through the establishment of a clinic.

Challenge

Nearly a million people were brought in in within 3 months, so the refugee camp was not developed properly. The lack of sanitation gives the entire camp a terrible smell. A health disaster is taking place in the camp where 100 refugees use a single toilet, and where sewage is not treated at all. The nutritional and hygiene problems of children and women with especially weak immune systems are serious.Among the Rohingya refugees, 70 percent are children and women.

Solution

We are currently operating a mobile clinic and a fixed clinic in Rohingya refugee camp, joining forces with DCHT(It's a medical organization that has received official approval from the Bangladesh government). The number of clinics currently in operation is not enough to treat and educate countless Rohingya children and women. If one more clinic is established, about 200 children and women can receive medical care and education each day.

Long-Term Impact

The clinic's construction project provides education and medical services to 200 children and women every day. 200 Rohingya refugees a day, 73,000 a year. Through the establishment of the clinic, we can provide various services such as health care, nutrition management, psychological treatment, and educational support for children and women. The Rohingya refugees can restore their physical and mental health, receive basic food supplies, and make healthy family plans.
