Location:

10837 S. Cicero Avenue, Suite 300, Oak Lawn 60453

Opportunity Description:

MedGlobal’s most recent work has been in the refugee camps of Bangladesh serving the Rohingya community. Our volunteers have been on the ground since the beginning of this ethnic cleansing and we are sending weekly medical missions to give necessary aid to Rohingya refugees. Currently focusing on primary care, women's health, malnutrition, dehydration, infectious disease, and pediatrics.

Since October of 2017, MedGlobal, has been sending weekly teams of physicians, nurses and public health workers to provide free and sustainable medical care for the Rohingya refugees and underserved citizens of Bangladesh. Through our partnerships with local NGOs, MedGlobal has been able to:

  • Provide a Western standard of medical care for approximately 100-250 patients per day (of which a third are children)

  • Administer thousands of dollars in lifesaving and disease-preventing medications each month

  • Deliver urgent and primary care services including, IV hydration, nebulizer treatments, wound care, point of care testing and ultrasound diagnostics

  • Distribute self-adjustable eyeglasses

  • Collaborate with other local NGOs and government organizations in providing hospital level care, TB testing and referrals for orthopedic/surgical cases
