This International Women’s Day, Friendship celebrates the women who have empowered themselves to make a difference in their communities. Friendship Community Health Workers are residents of some of the most remote and neglected communities in Bangladesh--the climate-impacted river islands of the Jamuna. These are places where it is impossible to build hospitals because the land itself is constantly eroding.
