Friendship is a value-based organisation with a holistic approach to development. Based in Bangladesh and founded in 1998, Friendship’s flagship project was the Lifebuoy Friendship Hospital, a floating hospital delivering primary and secondary healthcare. Friendship was founded in order to serve the marginalised and isolated communities of the chars of northern Bangladesh. Friendship includes programmes in Healthcare, Nutrition & Population; Education & Good Governance; Disaster Management & Infrastructure Development; Sustainable Economic Development; and Cultural Preservation.
We here at Friendship believe that education in any form – primary, adolescent or adult - makes development sustainable and thus, is an integral part of our organization’s focus.
Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) is a multi-hazard approach to disaster risk reduction, which brings communities to the center . . .
