Story

Mission Rohingya. An estimated 421,000 Rohingya have arrived in Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh since the latest bout of violence broke out on August 25 from Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

With medglobal (a humanitarian charity, https://www.medglobal.org/ ) we have assembled a team of doctors from the UK and US to fly out to Bangladesh. This includes Gynaecology, Internal medicine, family medicine and surgeons. Our team ready for deployment on the 8th October 17 include:

Naveed Iqbal: Team Lead/Family Medicine, UK. Greg Shay: Paediatrics, US. Minal Ahson: Paediatrics/Adult US. Shuaib Quraishi: Acute Medicine, UK. Enamul Haque: Family Medicine, UK. Zilani: Neurosurgery, UK. Imran Akbar: Anaesthetist, US. Maren Wolf: Emergency Medicine, US. Farida Ahmad: Public Health, US. Ambareen Jan: Obs&Gyn, US.

As you can imagine this involves considerable costs ranging from logistics to provision of important emergency medicines. We want to plan for a field hospital and now have over 120 doctors are ready to join us throughout the year. Without your help this work would be impossible. Please donate generously as we want to deliver the best medical care possible considering the hostile conditions.

Many of the new arrivals are staying in makeshift settlements or among local Bangladeshi host communities. Existing basic services are now strained, and aid agencies are struggling to cope with the rising needs. New arrivals in all locations are in urgent need of life-saving assistance in food, WASH, shelter, health and strong support in place to ensure their safety, dignity and respect for individual rights.

The population is highly vulnerable, consisting mainly of women and children. High numbers of GBV and trauma survivors require appropriate specialized services, including clinical management of rape, surgical intervention and mental health and psychosocial support. Systematic screening and referrals are required to ensure people are able to receive the services they need in a timely manner. The sooner education can be provided, the greater the dividends in helping children adjust to their current situation and build hope for the future.
