Mission and Vision

The inhabitants of the northern riverbank and areas of Bangladesh are some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in the world. Generally in developing countries, poor or lack of access to affordable, quality primary healthcare, and the availability of accurate diagnosis and treatment along with safe and effective medicine remain limited. In the chars, lack of basic infrastructure, health awareness, malnutrition, and personal hygiene makes conditions worse. launcheded in 2001, the 38 metre Lifebouy Friendship Hospital floats up and down the 'char' regions of Bangladesh with a full team of medical experts and a well stocked dispensary to support the char communities.
