Joy of the First Baby to be Born at Turkish Hospital for Muslims of Arakan 20 February 2018

The field hospital established by Turkey for the Muslim Arakan refugees in Bangladesh delivered its first baby.  

 The first baby boy to be born at the field hospital jointly set up by AFAD and the Turkish Ministry of Health at Cox’s Bazar area was named Muhammed Alperen.

We wish Muhammed Alperen a long and healthy life and hope that every passing age brings him happiness.  

We also congratulate the proud family of the baby and staff in the region who have been serving with great dedication since 2017.

The number of refugees who have sought shelter in Bangladesh since the Myanmar government forces started operation on August 25, 2017 has reached 700 thousand. Turkey is continuing its humanitarian aid to assist the Muslims of Arakan under the coordination of AFAD.
