Cox’s Bazar, in Bangladesh, is home to the world’s largest refugee camp. Crowded living conditions and a lack of health care are leaving a million Rohingya people highly exposed to coronavirus and other diseases, like cholera and measles.
Right now, there simply aren’t enough trained medical staff or facilities. We’re working hard to save lives, but we need your help too. We’ve already built hospitals and trained medical teams, but there is much more to do.
A donation from you could help train more health workers, and send more UK-Med specialists to Bangladesh and other urgent health crises around the world.
