Japanese ambassador in Dhaka Iwama Kiminori has visited Bhasan Char where over 30,000 Rohingya refugees have been relocated from the Cox’s Bazar camps.

 At Bhasan Char, the ambassador visited Friendship Primary Health Care Center (FPHCC).

He attended the inauguration ceremony of “The Project for Procurement of Medical Equipment for Pathological Tests and Dental Care in Bhasan Char Island, Noakhali District”.

The Japanese government, through the Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGHSP), supports this project being implemented by NGO “Friendship”.

The project is expected to provide continuous and efficient medical services to “Rohingya” patients on Bhasan Char by providing the necessary equipment for pathological tests and dental care such as a Biochemistry Analyzer, a portable Dental X-ray, and others.

“I hope this equipment will contribute to the provision of quality healthcare services and improve the healthcare environment on Bhasan Char, thereby supporting Bangladesh’s efforts to help Rohingya people", said the ambassador.

Japan has supported 213 NGO projects through its Grant Assistance for Grass-Roots Human Security Projects (GGHSP) since 1989 to enhance economic and social human security at the grassroots levels.

The total sum of these GGHSP grants extended to NGOs in Bangladesh to date amounts approximately to $16.9 million.
