Mohiuddin Nur Rashida Mobile Clinic

NABIC has been supporting community development work in Gabura at Shyamnagar, Satkhira for the past 9 years in response to the cyclone Sidr & Ayla. This ongoing project consist of Child adoption, Livelihood training, pond preservation for drinking water. Gabura is consists of 8 villages all surrounded by river, so the communication is very bad, especially these 40 thousand villagers has no place to go for healthcare support. The pregnant mother needs to cross the river & travel 20 miles for emergency treatment. NABIC took the initiative to start a Mobile clinic which will able to serve the whole community. For the mobile healthcare service a trawler  is used as a water ambulance to reach to the villagers.

This “Mohiuddin Nur Rashida Mobile clinic” will be consisting of a stationary clinic & trawler for mobile clinic. There will a qualified healthcare provider available all the time at the clinic. In addition to bringing in a general practitioner and taking this service to the steps of the rural poor, we would try to bring in gynecologists in the team. Antenatal and Postnatal care (ANC and PNC) services will be provided through our mobile health care unit once in a month, to identify high risk pregnant females and lactating mothers and children suffering from malnutrition. With the trawler we would able to provide healthcare in the remotest area, scheduling clinic once a week in different remote villages.

Through this project we will train 20 (10 male and 10 female) educated youth as ‘Shasthyo Shebok’ to assist in providing primary health care service and disseminating information to the people of their community. Also, in every village we will train a group of young people to provide assistance (as community or gram ‘shebok’) to the people and the clinic to maintain record, communication with the clinic, organize the patients and identify those who need urgent help, etc.

Due to the COVID pandemic it hasn’t start yet, but this project will be in action soon inshaAllah.

NABIC President Mahbubur Rahman Visited Projects in Bangladesh

NABIC President Mahbubur Rahman recently visited NABIC-sponsored projects in Bangladesh.

At the Safe Home for Girls in Gazipur, he ate lunch with kids and learned that they attend religion classes on Fridays, where they follow a superb textbook written by Dr. Noori that is also used here in the U.S. The Safe Home is getting additional construction done, and it sits next to a clinic that sees some 70 patients each day, alhamdulillah.

Rahman also visited two health facilities. The Madhabpur General Hospital is now headed by a full-time doctor who lives in a nearby village. The staff is hopeful that patient numbers will increase now that he is running the team. In Brahmanbaria, Rahman found a very unique space at the Idris-Chemon Chapur Clinic, where there is a clinic, women’s training program, and a computer literacy program, all under one roof. He was able to hand out certificates and sewing machines to 20 graduates of the training program — the women were happy, and some very emotional.

Finally, Rahman also had the opportunity to visit NABIC’s projects in the Rohingya camp in Ukhia. He inspected the tube wells built by NABIC and its partners, as well as the medical clinic, which he called “simply beautiful.” It remained busy throughout his visit with many patients and busy doctors.

He got to check out NABIC’s five learning centers, which have a total of 750 students and 10 teachers. The students wear NABIC backpacks and uniforms, unlike any of the other school programs in the camp. And they receive snacks at the end of their lessons so they can return home happy. The kids are smart, subhanallah — Rahman quizzed them on math problems, and they got their answers right! The children performed a choral song for him in the Rakhine language — a beautiful sight to behold.
