The Sreepur Village, Bangladesh

Health and Happiness for the Future

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" The majority of the women and children that come to The Sreepur Village have never been seen by a doctor. Beaten, impoverished and malnourished, our job is to provide distraught families with the right care that will see them healthy for the future.

Situation

Despite Bangladesh’s extraordinary recent GDP growth, 22 million people still live in abject poverty. Bangladeshi children facing severe poverty encounter extreme adversity eg. not knowing where their next meal is coming from, abandonment, homelessness, no access to education, child labour and sex-trafficking. These children also suffer from serious health issues eg. malnutrition, undernourishment, waterborne diseases from poor drinking water/sanitation and flooding and many remain unvaccinated.

In our programme 350 children will receive essential micronutrients e.g. Vitamin A; Medical treatments for scabies, parasites & headlice; Vaccinations e.g. Measles, Mumps, Rubella; Surgical procedures e.g. cataracts, cysts, hernias, haemorrhoids; Visits from a Cardiologist, Opthalmologist, Dermatologist, Orthopedist and Health and hygiene education.
