Big - hearted caregivers from an Abu Dhabi clinic embarked on a vital mission of mercy in Bangladesh to bring fresh hope to embattled Rohingya refugees embroiled in the world's fastest growing humanitarian crisis.
About 900, 000 Muslim Rohingya now seek solace in shanty tents made up of bamboo sticks and plastic in neighbouring Bangladesh.
But respite from the horrors of their homeland could be short - lived, as monsoons look set to bring a new trail of death and destruction their way.
CCAD, working with charities and official relief organisations, treated as many as 200 patients a day.
From babies to the elderly, for a range of conditions such as respiratory issues and parasitic infections.
Emergency department nurse, Elizabeth Gilmore spent a week in Bangladesh offering aid in April and says while the situation looks bleak, she has not given up hope of a brighter future for the long - suffering refugees.
Ms Gilmore said: "If you walk into the camp it is thousands upon thousands and thousands of people on top of each other in bamboo structures with tarp on top trying to get some sort of shelter from the heat and the rain. ”
Ms Gilmore has volunteered across the globe - but says this crisis is particularly disturbing due to the fact so many in need find themselves in a country facing its own problems.
She adds: "I was in Nepal in 2015 because of the earthquake and while it was a natural disaster with all their own people and their own resources but here there are coming into an already impoverished country that can hardly provide for its own people.
