Alliance of International Doctors (AID) has established two outpatient rooms, an emergency and operation theater, a maternity ward and a pharmacy.
AID head Dr. Mevlit Yurtseven told Anadolu Agency that they first provide medical screening to the refugees and then the necessary medication.
Yurtseven also said the doctors pay visits to the refugees and educate them about health and sanitation.
"Hundreds of people are being treated everyday at our healthcare center. Through charity from people, thousands of outpatient clinics have been established and medicines provided," he added.
He said they needed further support for food, medicine, medical equipments, sanitary products, baby formulas, clothing and tarp.

Dr. Kubra Nur Kaya, a volunteer for the project, spent her annual leave at the camp in Bangladesh and expressed her happiness at being part of the project.
The project is being conducted jointly by Turkish Diabetic Association and Allama Fazlullah Foundation.
