Birth Attendant Students Receive Field Training

Dear HOPE Supporter,

The birth attendants in training at HOPE Hospital are able to gain a special opportunity in the field. Due to a special grant provided to us by a women's giving circle, HOPE Foundation will be providing 500 pregnant women with full antenatal care and 100 special needs mothers with transportation to the hospital for delivery. This project affords us the opportunity to utilize our birth attendant trainees in getting into the field and working with mothers. They will not only be able to put their newly attained skills to use, but will also begin to see the ibncredible impact their jobs have on saving lives. They will come to this recognition as they encounter women with complications such as high blood pressure, diabetes, anemia and malnutrition. All of these conditions illicit urgent attention on the mother, particularly when she delivers birth. If our birth attendants did not provide them these serices, these women would not know otherwise of their potentially fatal conditions. 

We look forward to seeing how our students perform in the field and to update you with these results. Thank you for your commitment to training health workers and meeting the high demand in the rural area of Cox's Bazar. Together we can save lives.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

Getting Ready for our Next Camp!

Patient being Seen Following their Surgery
Patient being Seen Following their Surgery

Dear HOPE Supporter,

After last year's successful burn repair camp with our partner Resurge International, we have been following up with the 28 patients treated, providing post surgical care. Given the great outcomes achieved during the camp and HOPE's community health worker's enthusiasm for learning new skills to provide burn care and educaiton to poor families, Resurge International has set the date for their next camp! HOPE Foundation will be hosting its second Burn Repair Camp from November 7- 21, 2014. We could not be more excited to have the assistance of Resurge's team to provide unparalleled care and surgery to impoverished patients in Cox's Bazar. We are furthermore looking forward to the fantastic learning opportunities for our staff and village health workers, who are at the forefront of spreading awareness and education on the prevention of burn.

In the time leading up to the camp, HOPE Foundation will be recruiting patients and screening them to determine their eligibility for surgery. This is an extensive job, that invovles HOPE staff to travel to remote areas and essentially knock door to door, to inquire whether anyone in the home or village has endured a burn injury. While this task is tedious, its a great opportunity for our staff to reach additional remote areas and spread the word on not just burn care but the services at HOPE Hospital available for those who cannot afford care otherwise. We can't wait to update you in the lead up to the camp.

Best Wishes,

Ashley Pugh

Antenatal Care Provided During Mothers' Meeting

Mother
Mother's Club Meeting in Ramu

Dear HOPE Supporter,

In our last Mothers' Club Meetings, the objective was to provide antenatal care to expectant mothers who are otherwise either unable to pay for ANC care or are unaware of its importance. During one Mothers' Club meeting, HOPE staff were able to not only register 7 new expectant mothers into our database to follow their progress and provide care as necessary, but also conducted their first antenatal care service. Dr. Shoaib, HOPE's Hospital Director spoke of the importance of receiving antenatal care and the complications that can arise for mothers and baby the services are not sought. Dr. Shoaib further enlightened the mothers on the top preventable diseases the local children are suffering from and what they can do to protect their children. I was there at the meeting and found the mothers to be greatly interested in receiving the information; it was obvious they were retaining the information as they repeated back the information to Dr. Shoaib and answered questions on previous knowledge they had. It was a great learning experience for all. Thank you for your continued support of this ever-increasingly important project.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
