Friendship focuses on Disaster Relief Education Health & Nutrition and is headquartered in Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

To strengthen marginalized communities and empower people to reach their full potential through a needs-based, integrated development approach.


Friendship is a needs-based non-governmental organization that works in the most remote and inaccessible islands, riverbanks of northern Bangladesh and the remote coastal belt in the south. Established by Runa Khan in 2002, Friendship works to empower people through a sustainable, integrated development approach. Friendship began with the innovative concept of a floating hospital. The concept was realised when a river barge sailed from France was converted to a fully equipped floating hospital. Recognising that the broader goal of enabling these communities to improve their living conditions and gain control over their lives requires more than healthcare support alone, Friendship has progressively built its distinctive integrated community development model, which includes; health, education, disaster management and infrastructure development, good governance, sustainable economic development and cultural preservation. Today Friendship helps about 500,000 people every month.
