9 March 2019
On 7 March 2019, ADRRN’s member, Community Initiative Society (CIS) has been awarded a grant for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGHSP) from Japan. Ambassador Hiroyasu Izumi signed the GGHSP grant contracts at the Embassy of Japan with Executive Director of CIS Mr. Md. Golam Mostofa.
CIS was awarded the grant for “The Project for Procurement of medical equipment to support displaced people from Myanmar and host community in Cox’s Bazar”. CIS, in collaboration with Dhaka Community Hospital Trust (DCHT), have constructed a healthcare center at Camp-15, Jamtoli of Ukhiya, Cox’s Bazar with the aim of providing the refugee community with medical services.
Due to lack of medical equipment, CIS was unable to provide advanced treatments to the patients, especially women and children of the camp area. Upon receiving the equipment from GGHSP, CIS will be the first of its kind to provide ultra-sonogram, pathology tests and monitor cardiac conditions based inside the camp. Through this project, about 252,000 people from Camp-15 will be benefitted annually from CIS’s healthcare center for 24/7, free of cost.
