For the sake of underprivileged community
AMAL, a non profitable foundation in Bangladesh, has been working with underprivileged communities since 2014 to empower, educate, provide health care and shelter them in emergency situations like natural disasters and crisis. AMAL was established 3 years ago and since then the organization has grown rapidly attracting hundreds of members and supporters from right across the globe.
With the people struggling to access appropriate health care in the Sonpocha, Bogra, AMAL is trying to suffice their medical needs by providing them with better health care services. To develop their adverse current lifestyle, it is also providing basic necessities and ensuring a better survival.
While explaining the present difficulties in Sonpocha, founder and director of AMAL foundation Esrat Karim Eve mentioned that poor access to quality health service and high costs of treatment force them into danger situation. They have to travel 3 hours for medical treatment that has high risk of death and physical damage. There are no medical clinic and pharmaceutical shops in these communities.
With health care being an expensive resource, AMAL foundation has facilitated a community health care center. Though Esrat claims it to be a "little effort", this health center is currently focusing profoundly on better wellbeing by ensuring regular check-ups twice a week. Free medication is provided to the visitors as required. 2 doctors and women hygiene trainer is accessible for the local people to seek advice regarding any queries they have.
We provide hygiene tutorial once a week to escalate basic knowledge regarding menstrual hygiene and birth control. Sessions on child and adult nutrition are also organized regularly," added Esrat. With over 300 AMAL volunteers, the foundation is also working to support the Rohingya refugees with food, clothing, and shelter. They also run AMAL Ucchash School along with Rowshan Ara Skill Centre at Sonpocha for the children.
While speaking on their future plans, Efrit Karim, CEO of AMAL foundation said, "We believe we are all equal, regardless of wealth, religious identity and class."
