Starting in April 2022, The AMCB Foundation will be providing monthly medical clinics at its medical facility and distribution center in Bikrampur Khilgaon in the Munshiganj District in Central Bangladesh for those villagers who can’t afford medical care.
The first clinic occured on April 11, 2022. At that clinic, The AMCB Foundation provided eye treatment to over 60 patients at its facility in Bikrampur Khilgaon. This medical clinic was conducted in collaboration with the Asia Digital Eye Hospital of Dhaka City. Patients came from Bikrampur Khilgaon and several surrounding villages. The doctors treated a wide variety of eye ailments. In several cases they recommended follow up care, including preparing several patients for eye surgery. Volunteers are working on setting up further care for these patients.
Please take a look at some of the photos below. If you wish to help us provide medical care and other essentials (such as blankets, food, clothing, and school supplies) to those in need, please donate. Every little bit helps.
During the first week of December 2021, the AMCB Foundation distributed more than 400 blankets in the village Bikrampur Khilgaon and some surrounding villages in Munshiganj District, Bangladesh.

This event is part of our regular distribution program in rural Bangladesh. During these events, we will hold medical clinics at our rural medical facility in Bikrampur Khilgaon and distribute necessities such as food, clothing, blankets, and related items in different surrounding villages. Some of these events are done with the help of other charitable organizations.
We are planning additional events for the next few months. If you are interested in helping out the rural poor and needy people, click here.
During the first week of September 2021, AMCB Foundation Bangladesh, in coordination with the Munshiganj District branch of Bangladesh Human Rights Development Commission, worked to reduce the mosquito population in Bikrampur Khilgaon and surrounding villages.
In the last few months, Bangladesh suffered an endemic of Dengu Fever. Dengu Fever is carried by mosquitoes and can lead to serious illness or death. A large number of people in Bangladesh were infected with Dengu Fever, which led to many deaths.
As part of the larger efforts to combat Dengu Fever, AMCB Foundation Bangladesh and the Mushiganj District Branch of the Bangladesh Human Rights Development Commission sprayed several villages to help control the mosquito population.
