Health, Water & Sanitation
SOJAG’s involvement in this sector has been not been as significant as it would like to be. Despite resource constraints SOJAG is striving to provide basic and primary health services, namely, safe drinking water, sanitation and health education. Currently, with assistance from NGO Forum for Drinking Water, SOJAG is implementing intensive water and sanitation project in two unions of Dhamrai. Seventeen villages have been brought under full sanitation coverage. Last year 1,500 families were provided with sanitary latrines and 3 sanitary materials production centers were established. As many as 82 shallow tube wells were installed with the assistance of Muslim Aid, a British NGO working in Bangladesh.
SOJAG Pathological Lab: In an effort to bring diagnostic services closer to the reach and to provide routine pathological tests for the villagers in and around Shailan, SOJAG has established a Pathological Lab housed in SOJAG Headquarters. The Lab performs routine blood and other tests including ECG at affordable costs. This facility was established in response to popular and felt need of the common people of locality.
