Hi everyone - it's been a few months since we have updated the blog, but we've been busy this year. Here are a few updates:
1) Update on the medical facility: In the last few months, the AMCB Foundation has completed about 90% of the construction of Phase I of our medical facility and distribution center in the village of Bikrampur Khilgaon. The facility includes a medical facility, relief distribution center, and temporary accommodations for doctors, nurses, and other relief personnel. Below are some updated pictures.

We will continue to provide construction. For more information on our medical facility, check out our Medical Facility Construction page. If you are interested in providing money to finish construction, please donate.
2) Rohingya refugees: In addition to constructing the medical facility, the AMCB Foundation is working to provide relief to Rohingya refugees. We are in the process of developing plans to provide long-term help to these individuals. Several Directors of AMCB Foundation and local volunteers visited the Rohingya refugees in the Rohingya refugee camp near the Bangladesh-Myanmar boarder in the Cox Bazar district. They observed the refugee’s living conditions, interviewed the refugees and discussed their food, clothing, and medical care conditions, and discussed the situations in the refugee camp with the national and international charitable workers working there. This visit allowed the AMCB Foundation team to collect valuable information regarding the short-term and long-term needs of the refugees for food, clothing, medical care, education, and housing that will be useful to develop an effective humanitarian assistance program for the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh .

In the next few months, we expect to have several more announcements, including several major fundraising initiatives. In the meantime, please consider donating. Your donation helps provide basic food and medical care to those in need. Donate today!
