I have been deployed on several medical and emergency relief missions over the last 10 years during my volunteer work in the humanitarian sector.
This has included working in medical field clinics in Pakistan during the devastating floods of 2010, Gaza city in Palestine after the attacks in 2012, Aleppo Medical City in 2013, Bosnia in the 2014 Floods and medical relief camps in Calais, the Jungle.
With the escalation in violence against the Rohingyas, and subsequent mass exodus of refugees to the Bangladesh border, hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people have been left with no basic amenities and no access to healthcare. Estimates range around 800,000 people living exposed to the elements in flimsy tents in essentially an open air camp city.
I am joining a team of medical doctors, surgeons, pharmacists and logistics staff through Syria Relief and the David Nott Foundation to provide healthcare and emergency relief for those that need it in the camps. I need YOUR help to do this. We want YOU to be on this journey with us. Don't just donate- watch your contribution come to life through this work and follow our journey online. We have to be the change we want to see!
Medical and Emergency Relief Mission for Rohingyas
My favourite quote from the Quran (Surah Maidah 5:32) is that 'to save one life is to save the whole of humanity'
By providing medical and emergency relief to those that most need this in the camps, we WILL be saving lives with the Mercy of God insha'Allah. We will be working with partner organisations already working in the camps to help set up a medical field camp and work with the existing medical teams working with the refugee survivors.
You can donate towards medical equipment, dressings, and medicines like much needed pain relief and antibiotics. Many of the refugees have been subject to physical and mental trauma and there is a dire need for female health practitioners and medics purely due to the high numbers of female refugees- many of whom are rape survivors and have witnessed the torture and killing of close family members.
Its time for us to step up our aid campaigns. Its time for us to look after our brothers and sisters in need with dignity. Please help support this medical mission, firstly with your sincere prayers and then whatever you can manage financially. May it be a means of expiation for you and us, Ameen.
