'Feels like home'. That is how our students describe their feelings on staying at UniKL RCMP

The atrocities of the Myanmar military and vigilantes in Rakhine state on Rohingya people has received much attention from the world community. The United Nation has released the report which classified the massacre at Rakhine and exodus of Rohingya to Bangladesh as human crisis tantamount to genocide. To date, it is estimated around one million Rohingyas are in several refugees’ camps at Cox’ Bazar Bangladesh and nearly 100 thousand in our country. Our Prime Minister has voiced this issue in many international fora and has lost faith in Aung San Suu Kyi the Myanmar leader. Concerned about the escalation and poor response of world leaders on the plight of Rohingya people, Malaysia had initiated humanitarian programs in relieving the suffering of the people.

The former Prime Minister had envisaged of giving health care services to several refugee’s camps at Cox’s Bazar. The Arm forces of Malaysia was given the mandate to run the show given their experience in setting field hospital in war zone Bosnia and other civil war conflicts. The dry run was successfully conducted in Kuantan military complex. Finally, operation Starlight 2 mission officially began and established Malaysia Field Hospital (MFH) at Cox’s Bazar in late November 17. With the cooperation from other Islamic countries such as Saudi, UEA and Brunei facilities were slowly added and upgraded. To date, MFH is one of the most popular hospital and referral centre with state-of-the-art facilities in Cox Bazar.

The operation of MFH is managed by the Defense Ministry with the assistance from Health Ministry and Ngo’s which provide staff on a rotation basis. Professor Karim and Dr Ibrahim both are the academic staff of UniKL RCMP on their capacity as NGO members were honoured and invited by the Director General of Kor Perubatan Angkatan Tentera to serve the hospital in November 2018 for a duration of 2 weeks. MFH is a specialist field hospital which provides medical, surgical, O &G, pediatric, emergency medicine and other hospital support services. Thanks to our partners who donated state of the art operation theatre equipment such as laparoscopic surgery and other facilities to facilitate the smooth running of the hospital. This hospital conducts on the average 3 major operations and few minor operations per day.

Among others are thyroidectomy, herniorrhaphy, splenectomy, a mastectomy to name a few. With intensive care facilities and admission wards, MFH has become a referral hospital for other NGOs which also run healthcare services and even the Bangladesh government hospital. Our trip went smoothly, and this would not be successful had not the CEO Tuan Haji Hisshamuddin consented and supported us. We wish to extend our thank to UniKL management which has given us this opportunity to serve the underprivileged Rohingya and prove that our country is doing the best of our effort for the hard-pressed Rohingya, not mere rhetoric.
