REPORTS AND DOCUMENTATION
Friendship issues report “The Status of Knowledge of Legal Rights, Government Structure and Education” following research over the years in Bangladesh’s Chars. Our Good Governance Program endeavours to make underprivileged citizens aware of their rights and offer them access to justice and legal services. (Thanks to ERIKSHJALPEN for their financial support.)
SATMED, an e-health platform, was deployed in Friendship’s hospital ships and Gaibanda training centre. The platform is used to share medical records across the three ships, to synchronise information with HQ, and to provide e-learning web conferencing tools to the training centre (Funded by the Luxembourg Government and developed by SES).
