Led by the assistant supervisor general for planning and development at KSrelief, Aqeel Al Ghamdi, the team visited two hospitals — Ukhiya Specialized Hospital and Sadar District Hospital — in the area, according to a written statement received from KSrelief in Jakarta on Tuesday.
The team also reviewed the vital support, including medical supplies and equipment, that is being provided to Bangladesh by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through KSrelief.
The review emphasized the continuation of KSrelief’s partnership with the hospitals for ongoing comprehensive patient treatment.
The team also made an inspection visit to its housing project in the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar.
Al Ghamdi informed that KSrelief has implemented a shelter project consisting of 410 housing units to support the Rohingya refugees affected by a fire that broke out in the camps.
He also said that 300 units have already been handed over, with the remaining units scheduled to be delivered in the coming days.
In 2022, KSrelief handed over 500 housing units to Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, benefiting 590 families (about 3 thousand individuals).
Saudi Arabia has provided support for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and in other countries through more than 43 projects.
The projects, which have been implemented at a total cost of US$186 million, have included activities related to the emergency relief response, education, shelter, and health sectors.
