Friends in Bangladesh
Our service, based on consultation with local leaders, has included:
Friends in Bangladesh has conducted three medical clinics since 2009, treating over 3,000 people. These clinics provide the basic medical and dental needs of local villagers along with free medicines.
In conjunction with our medical clinics, we have also conducted feeding programs, giving the local populations a nutritious meal.
Fresh Deep Tube Water Wells
Despite the fact that Bangladesh is essentially a river delta, there is a lack of fresh, clean, drinkable water. These deep tube wells go down 600-800 feet to find potable water. Over the last three years, Friends in Bangladesh has drilled at least six wells that the local populations can use free of charge.
Currently, Friends in Bangladesh provides monthly support to 25 local pastors, enabling them to dedicate their efforts to their ministries full time.
Churches and Schools
We are now in the process of building a new church building in Machimi Village on land specifically purchased for that purpose. This building will also be used as a school for the local population.
