Opening Medical Clinic for Rohingya Refugees in Bangladesh

Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh is home to a million Rohingya refugees from Myanmar who fled to Bangladesh after suffering genocide and persecution in Myanmar.

To discuss the humanitarian situations and living conditions of Rohingya Muslim refugees, a delegation from Barzani Charity Foundation visited Bangladesh. In their visit to the Kutupalog camp of Rohingya refugees, the refugees’ struggles and medical shortcomings highlighted. The BCF decided to open a medical clinic in the camp.

Health crises in the Kutupalog camp threaten the lives of 700 thousand residents of the camp. The medical clinic is a partnership project between BCF and MedGlobal. This clinic will provide medical assistance and ensure the healthcare of the refugees. Medical treatments will be provided for 500 persons per day.

To serve the refugees, BCF prepared iftar for the Rohingya refugees in Kutupalog camp.

Kutupalog camp in Bangladesh is the largest refugee camp in the world with a population of 700 thousand Muslim Rohingya refugees. The biggest gaps in this camp are in the health and cleaning sectors. Water pollution is another problem, the refugees are facing a lack of drinking water, 60% of drinking water is polluted. Barzani Charity Foundation is the first ever organization in Iraq and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) to deliver humanitarian aids to the Rohingya refugees.
