Earlier this year, Church of Bangladesh (COB)’s Barishal Diocese served its community through an eye camp at the St Mary’s Clinic of Jobarpar, in partnership with Islamia Eye Hospital. They were able to provide free medical assistance to over 53 people, and under the Diocese’s supervision are five health clinics to care for those unable to travel to the cities for a regular checkup.
Over at Narikelbari Health Clinic of St Jacob’s Church, they pay door to door visits to provide healthcare for the villagers. In particular, they aim to ensure that the elderly is getting proper medical attention and children are receiving regular vaccinations. The Koligram Health Clinic in St Peter’s Church conducts similar door to door services in its local community as well.
