The AMCB Foundation Bangladesh strives to improve the lives of those in need in the rural areas of Bangladesh to make them self-reliant. These people include those who suffer from poverty and disease, including refugees. Our goal is to collaborate with communities in need to provide sustainable solutions.
Since 2012, the AMCB Foundation Bangladesh has conducted charitable activities in
Bangladesh. The AMCB Foundation Bangladesh focuses on providing charity to needy families and individuals in rural areas. In Bangladesh, many rural areas are much poorer than urban centers. In addition, the majority of foreign aid is directed towards urban areas. As a result, the AMCB Foundation Bangladesh looks to reach those who are less likely to receive help from other sources.
Over the course of the last several years, the AMCB Foundation Bangladesh has held free medical clinics throughout several rural areas of Bangladesh. Those clinics have provided medical care and medicine to over 2,500 people. Starting in the spring of 2020, the AMCB Foundation Bangladesh will be holding bi-monthly clinics for the residents of several villages with eventual plans to increase to monthly clinics.
In addition to the free medical clinics, the AMCB Foundation Bangladesh has nearly completed the first phase of a permanent medical facility and distribution center in a village outside of Dhaka. The facility will be used for our bi-monthly medical clinics.
In addition to medical care, the AMCB Foundation Bangladesh has provided food and blankets to those in need. Our most recent blanket distribution happened in December 2018, and we are planning to expand our efforts in the near future.
The AMCB Foundation Bangladesh is also developing plans for helping forcedly displaced Rohingyas in camps in Bangladesh.
In 2018, several AMCB Foundation Bangladesh Board members and local volunteers visited the Kutupalong-Balukhali camp in the Cox’s Bazar district near the Bangladesh-Myanmar border. The visiting team assessed the overall conditions of the displaced Rohingyas in the camp and talked to some of the refugees and the Bangladeshi and international charitable organizations working there with the refugees.
