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.
