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 Rongdhonu 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 Rongdhonu hospital ship along the coast lines of the Bay of Bengal,
Friendship needs to raise 650.000 EUR in 2017 (representing about 12EUR per patient treated 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 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 patients have been treated on board the ship.

Michael C. Hall meets Runa Khan (Founder of Friendship) aboard our Rongdhonu floating hospital as he comes to witness how Friendship is able to offer free health services to the poor in the most inaccessible places.
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.
