Our Partners

After the Rohingya people fled Myanmar in 2017, approximately 950,972 Rohingya Refugees now reside in 190,694 shelters within the 34 camps in Cox’s Bazar. The refugee camp relies on humanitarian assistance to sustain its inhabitants’ basic needs, such as food, water, shelter, and health (WASH). Bangladesh is also on the front lines of climate change with heavy, unpredictable rains, extremely high heat, and threatening typhoons. Poverty is compounded by the effects of climate change, perpetuating this dangerous cycle.

Airlink has supported partner deployment for a number of medical training missions to the Cox’s Bazar Refugee Camp, including training for local midwives on neonatal resuscitation with the goal of reducing newborn and maternal mortality rates. Trained medical responders also provided education and training to physicians and nurses on non-communicable diseases, care of cancer patients, palliative care, medication administration, wound care education, and infection control. Additionally, responders provided surgical intervention with consultation, training for emergent burn care, and community health education on breast cancer and breast self-exams.

Further, Airlink supported multiple shipments of medical supplies, aiding the ongoing response of NGO partners to the Rohingya Refugee Crisis and providing critical health interventions to displaced persons.

What our partners are saying:

“It would be impossible to conduct this project without the support of Airlink. The supply chain is an important part of conducting the project when it comes to delivering necessary medical logistics and medicines items to hard-to-reach locations, especially quality items. With the support of Airlink, it has been possible to deliver much-needed medicine and vitamin items to pregnant and lactating mothers from the most persecuted community in the world that is Rohingyas living in Bangladesh as displaced from Myanmar.” – MedGlobal
