Fundraiser: Ben Nevis
A group of RCF volunteers will be climbing the highest mountain in UK to raise money for Rohingyan refugees.
Funds raised will be used to fund the dental project, medical equipment and go towards essential welfare items including food, shelter and water sanitisation. If you are unable to join the team in Bangladesh but still want to help in any capacity you can join the team in our fundraising events.
The team have actively been working on our next project where we hope to provide medical, dental and welfare aid for Rohingyan refugees within Bangladesh. We are proud to announce that we will be partnering with Syria Relief on our March trip. Syria Relief are the project implantation partner for leading UK charities such as SAVE THE CHILDREN and Unicef.
Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have been forced to flee from their homes in Myanmar and are currently living in deplorable conditions. Those that survive have given harrowing accounts of death and violence, including hundreds of cases of rape. Following a needs assesment in bangladesh, dental aid has been identified as an area of priority.
For the dental project, RCF will operate a mobile dental clinic, deliver our preventative dentistry programme “Healthy Smiles” and create a sustainable oral health programme to be used by local school teachers.
