Rohingya Refugee Relief

Serving the Rohingya Through Medical Care

The Rohingya have been described by the UN as one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. Denied citizenship in their home country and declared as illegal immigrants, they became one of the largest stateless populations in the world as an estimated 800,000 Rohingya crossed the border in Bangladesh to flee violent persecution in Myanmar.

God placed the Rohingya people on Reach Beyond’s heart long before they fled to Bangladesh, but we were hindered in reaching out to them as long as they were isolated in Myanmar. With the refugees now in Bangladesh, a window has opened allowing us to love and pray for this unreached people group.

Last November, Reach Beyond and a local Bangladeshi NGO began working on a plan to help the Rohingya in their displacement. The immediate need was for blankets in the cold season and, in January, we were able to work together on a distribution of 10,000 blankets in one of the camps. [Watch video of blankets being given to refugees.]

Because there is a great need for medical facilities in the camp, we determined with our partner that our next step would be to provide a maternal and primary health care clinic in an underserved camp area. On May 7, that clinic opened, with local professionals and a Reach Beyond medical team working together to begin serving the people in the immediate vicinity. Conditions have included gastric problems, day-to-day injuries from working with bamboo, skin infections, malnutrition, anemia, coughs and fevers, suspected tuberculosis and malaria, cuts and burns, and pre- and post-natal issues.

Reach Beyond wants to send short term medical teams on a monthly basis to help support the clinic. There is an urgent need to purchase a vehicle for an ambulance, and ongoing needs to pay for medicine and cover operational costs of the clinic.

Would you consider partnering with us to continue to be the hands of Jesus among the Rohingya? Your monthly commitment or one-time gift will make a difference in many lives.
