To Improve the life status of vulnerable people



Project summary


“To Improve the life status of vulnerable people by mobilizing power of humanity and to bridge the gap in surgical interventions” through UNFPA/RTMI partnership.


Bangladesh is experiencing one of the worst humanitarian crises in its history, due to the recent influx of hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas coming from Myanmar. The United Nations estimates that as of the end of September, more than 680,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh since the latest round of violence started on August 25. Other estimates put the number closer to 800,000 - making it difficult for the Government, NGOs, and local inhabitants to arrange essential shelter, food and water, medicine, sanitation, and clothes for the Rohingya people.


In addition, the population of Cox Bazar district especially in Ukhiya and Teknaf is highly in need of medical surgical assistance, especially CEmONC services.
