None shall be turned away is the pledge of LAMB hospital in rural North West Bangladesh.              

We raise money for a poor fund so that no-one is turned away from treatment because of their poverty. It is well known locally that LAMB treats people first and deals with finance later, and so the poor come to LAMB.

Every penny of donations received by LHCF goes to LAMB; as our small administrative costs are borne by our Trustees.

The LAMB project runs a network of 25 clinics and safe delivery units, and a 150 bed hospital. They help an average of 460 outpatients a day. It also provides health care to the 1. 5 million poor in the surrounding villages, using more than 400 trained village health volunteers to raise awareness of how illness can be prevented.

One of its proudest achievements is to decrease the number of mothers and children dying in childbirth to half the national level in this area, but there is much more to be done! In addition to clinical services LAMB’s work includes: community dvelopment; working to improve women’s rights and to reduce violence against women; training community midwives; and improving the health and education of children with disabilities.
