Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) has recently opened its second Aid Station in Unchiprang under Teknaf upazila of Cox's Bazar.

These results mark the first time the organisation is focusing its humanitarian efforts on land, said a press release.  

The centre will provide much-needed medical care to Rohingya refugees in the makeshift camps next to the Teknaf wild life reserve as well as to the Bangladeshi host community, particularly to pregnant women, new mothers and children.

Due to its detached and wild location, IOM recently reported that Unchiprang is extremely vulnerable and needs medical support immediately. 

In response to the poor conditions in the makeshift camps, this second MOAS Aid Station is equipped with advanced medical tents, autonomous energy and independent water system. MOAS has assembled a team of doctors and nurses who will address the emergency by delivering both primary and secondary medical services, with a focus on combating the high rate of malnutrition among children, providing preventative nutrition assistance to the many people at risk.

The clinic is fitted with state of the art diagnostic equipment which has been donated by the Community of Sant’Egidio.

Just one month ago, the organisation opened its first Aid Station in Shamlapur.
