KSRelief in Bangladesh to increase health projects for Rohingya Muslims

:: A team from the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid (KSRelief), currently in Bangladesh, is studying ways to implement more health projects that will have a positive humanitarian impact on Rohingya refugee camps.

The team is currently in Cox’s Bazar and is carrying out its operations in coordination with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the government of Bangladesh.

Two weeks ago, King Salman ordered an additional $15 million for the Rohingya Muslims during a Cabinet meeting that condemned the terrorist massacres.

The Cabinet meeting discussed the brutal attacks and genocide committed against the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and the systematic destruction of many villages and homes of the Muslim minority.

The Saudi team is currently at the Manojano refugee camp in Bangladesh, attending to the health needs of the 100,000 refugees. This is the third visit of the KSRelief team, which was preceded by the first visit to the Kota Bolong camp and the second to the Palo Cali camp.

The head of the hospital, Dr. Bchwano, said the main hospital is the only hospital in the region that receives medical cases from the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazaar. The hospital has a 250-bed capacity, and the number of sick Rohingya refugees is much higher than the hospital’s capacity, he said.

An official from the Saudi team said that it is exploring ways and means to attend to the growing health care needs of the refugees.

Bangladesh Ambassador Golam Moshi told Arab News that the number of refugees has reached nearly 1 million. “We are very thankful to King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for their magnanimous support for Bangladesh to look after these refugees,” the envoy said, recalling the Kingdom’s solidarity shown toward this cause at all public platforms including the OIC and even at the UN General Assembly.
