Working with Rohingya Refugees

On June 22, 2018, Betsy Hague, a Medical Mission Sisters Associate, left for Bangladesh to work with the Rohingya Muslim refugees. While at the camp, Betsy connected with a female doctor who asked her to work with the midwives at the camp, helping them with various skills in working with the women who have been so traumatized. She also went to several classes that had already been planned and met most of the midwives with the intention of giving them some support and ideas for doing group work at the clinic.
