Makeshift Medical Clinic in one of the Rohingya Refugee Camps in Bangladesh
As we speak a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions is unfolding in Bangladesh. More than 700,000 Rohingya, a persecuted Muslim minority are now seeking refuge and filling camps in Bangladesh as they escape indescribable brutality from Myanmars military.
It has been reported that 60% of the inhabitants are children who arrived at the camp malnourished with little to no resources for food, water, or health services.
Due to the physical location as well as political situations getting theses refugees the aid they need has been very challenging.
Our Founder and Director Angie Hungerford went to Bangladesh herself in November of 2017 to set up a Makeshift Medical Clinic and to work in the camps providing aid, support, and assistance.
Angie is currently scheduled to go back to Bangladesh late January 2018. If you would like to donate to our efforts there please see this link – www.sotheycanthrive.com/donate
We cannot provide this vital service to humanity without generous donations from you.
If you have more questions about the Rohingya Refugee Crisis please see this October 16th, 2017 UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency video –
So They Can Thrive is a non-profit that was first established in 2011 by Angie Hungerford as First Foundation Inc.
When asked why she felt compelled to launch a non- profit Angie paused, and got a very thoughtful look on her face and said – “Because I understand suffering.”
Angie’s journey has included her own share of suffering and those travails shaped her heart and led her to a place where she could not overlook the misery of others and since 2011 she been serving others, and helping to see that their basic needs are are met so they can thrive.
