The Rohingya refugees' plight is not over yet. They are in the midst of a severe health crisis in over-crowded refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh with no access to care, even the most basic medical aid.
Till date, over 200 of our volunteer physicians provided free healthcare to 341,683 refugees who lined up on the dusty, uneven path through their shelter homes made with just tarp, desperately seeking medical care.
2017 - IMANA Medical Relief responded immediately by launching its SaveRohingya Medical mission in December 2017. IMR has since then maintained its presence in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh via mobile and static clinic inside the refugee camps in coordination with local partners. Our volunteer teams of doctors travel weekly to Bangladesh to provide critically needed healthcare to the Rohingya refugees, and they are assisted by Bangladeshi doctors. IMR teams have rotated weekly to the refugee camp sites up until March 2020.
It is a responsibility on each and every one of us to protect this vulnerable population, as we continue to respond to one of the world’s most difficult humanitarian crises and deliver urgently needed medical care.
