Late August 2017, more than 700,000 Rohingya fled the persecution in Myanmar. The Bangladeshi government and local civilians selflessly came forward to help ensure their survival and basic needs. After an initial assessment in September, Friendship was among the first registered NGOs, starting actions on October 5, 2017. Our first and continuous concern was to ensure respectful giving and address the most vital needs.

Thanks to our partners, our 200+ team members who mobilized themselves in a very short notice, the Bangladesh Army, local organizations and Rohingya camp representatives and members and their support we managed to build responsible and continuous support services since then.

Highlights:

  • 306,488 health services provided to 278,793 beneficiaries.
  • 13 basic health clinics and 2 maternity clinics constructed.
  • 24 satellite clinic and 24 mobile health teams functional.
  • 123 institutional delivery conducted in maternity clinics of which 38 are cesarean delivery.
  • 157 delivery assisted by Traditional Birth Attendant (TBA) at the household level.
  • 17,640 nutrition food packets distributed among 200 babies and 80 mothers for 9 weeks.
  • 700 emergency dry food packets distributed.
  • 11,451 hygiene kits distributed and 453 hygiene awareness sessions conducted.
  • 51 deep tube-wells, 150 latrines and 150 bathing spaces constructed.
  • 40 hand-washing devices and 40 garbage pits installed.
  • 1,000 beneficiary trained on fire safety and received fire buckets.
  • 2,000 plantation done by 1,000 trained beneficiaries.
  • 2 fecal sludge management plants built.
  • 8 Child-Friendly Spaces established.
  • 950 children enrolled in Child-Friendly Spaces.
  • 21 solar-systems and 60 street lamps installed.
  • 30 dignity billboards installed.
  • 5 bamboo bridges constructed.

Needs are still tremendous and evolving. Of course, the main concern is now to ensure the continuity of health services, but also to take care of adolescents, prepare for the winter period and strengthen all infrastructure, in order to restore dignity and hope among the Rohingya and the host communities.

Friendship Overview

Friendship is a needs-based non-government organization (NGO) that aims to strengthen marginalized communities and empower people to reach their full potential through a sustainable, integrated development approach. Founded by Runa Khan in 2002, Friendship began with the innovative concept of a floating hospital with the vision of carrying healthcare to the ultra-poor in the remote communities. Since then, Friendship has developed a structured, three-tier healthcare system to provide comprehensive quality healthcare and information. Recognizing that the broader goal of enabling these communities to improve their living conditions and gain control over their lives requires more than healthcare support alone, Friendship has progressively built its distinctive integrated community development model, which includes: Health, Education, Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Management, Inclusive Citizenship, Sustainable Economic Development and Cultural Preservation. Friendship supports communities mainly in the shifting northern river islands, known as “Chars”, of the Brahmaputra and Jamuna rivers and in the coastal areas of the Bay of Bengal.
