Act for Peace


Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Isaiah 40:1

6 December 2020 is the second Sunday of Advent. 

Bible readings:

  • Isaiah 40:1-11
  • Psalm 85: 1-2,8-13
  • 2 Peter 3: 8-15a
  • Mark 1: 1-8

Please pray for:

  • the safety and dignity of Rohingya refugees in Cox's Bazar
  • peaceful co-existence between Rohingya refugees and local communities
  • women, youth and people living with disabilities to get opportunities to learn new skills and increase their income.

Dr Mehindi Hassan and his fellow doctors treat thousands of Rohingya refugees everyday, helping to shape peaceful futures.

"I am Doctor Mehindi Hassan and I work as a Medical Officer for Rohingya refugees.

Many Patients come here every day. 1,200-1,500 patients come to five satellite clinics and one main clinic.

I came here to this camp because I wanted to five humanitarian support. If we were not here, many people would die form a lack of good and treatment. If the service stopped, it would be devastating here.

A while ago I had a patient who was five years old. The child had a sore throat and was in pain. I looked carefully and realised it was tongue disease. I gave him medicines for seven days and he recovered well.

I am happy that I can serve the people. If a patient comes to me and I can cure them and see a smile on their face, I feel happy and I forget all pain and suffering.

I think everyone should help the Rohingya people since they have rights to live as human beings."
