IMAGINE LIFE WITHOUT ACCESS TO A DOCTOR

Survival is an every day struggle for Bangladesh’s marginalised communities. People die from easily preventable diseases. Imagine your child has an infection and can’t be treated because you don’t have access to a doctor.

Friendship’s hospital ship may be the only hope people have of receiving medical aid. It’s their lifeline.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Without access to Friendship’s hospital ships, marginalised communities do not have access to vital healthcare.
To continue operating our hospital ship along the coast lines of the Bay of Bengal,
Friendship needs to raise 650.000 EUR in 2017 (representing about 12 Euro per health service provided on board).
Please donate and help us continue to bring lifesaving healthcare to the poor.

The story behind Friendship’s
Rongdhonu Hospital Ship

In 2010, Greenpeace generously gifted their legendary Rainbow Warrior II to Friendship. The vessel was converted into a hospital ship enabling us to bring lifesaving medical services to men, women and children in remote coastal areas of the Bay of Bengal…areas that had been previously inaccessible.

Since starting operations in 2013, more than 165.000 health services have been delivered on-board the ship.

EVERYDAY PEOPLE DIE FROM EASILY PREVENTABLE DISEASES.

A relatively simple operation is often all that is needed to save or dramatically improve a life. Help the Rongdhonu hospital ship continue to bring life-saving health services to Bangladesh’s marginalised men, women and children.
