Our work is in partnership with the Church of Bangladesh. The PC (U.S.A.) provides financial support for Christian Mission Hospital in Rajshahi.
Christians make up less than one-half of 1 percent of the population of Bangladesh, which is a majority Muslim country, and often suffer from discrimination in the Muslim-dominated government. In the educational system and business sectors, many Christians are from non-Bengali tribal backgrounds and suffer from ethnic discrimination as well. Bengali is the major ethnic group in the country, comprising 90 percent of the population.
The Church of Bangladesh focuses on supporting parish life and nurturing ecumenical relations. The church is part of the National Council of Churches in Bangladesh.
