Birth Attendants Learn to Use New Device

Bangladesh
Bangladesh's Future Change Makers: Our Midwives

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Our skilled birth attendants enrolled in our first class are nearing graduation and engaged in hands-on experience to prepare them for the job market. Their field work ranges from providing antenatal care, conducting labs, to assiting doctors with deliveries. They are acutely trained on recognizing the warning signs of high risk pregnancies as well as complications during delivery. This is most important in Cox's Bazar when transportation to a comprehensive facility equipped to do emergency obstetric care is limited and access can be deterred for a multitude of reasons. Every second counts when a mother is experiencing complications in labor and thus our birth attendants won't hesitate when they see a warning sign. Prior to graduation, each midwife will have been present to a minimum of 40 deliveries. They are exposed to many projects of HOPE's and have become instrumental in supporting our work. We cannot be any more ecstatic for these women to work in their communities and make a huge difference for the mothers of rural Bangladesh. Thank you for your continued support.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

The Impact of your Donation is Incredible

Mohammad, Burn Patient at HOPE Hospital
Mohammad, Burn Patient at HOPE Hospital

Dear HOPE Supporter,

I wanted to take this time to share an incredible story with you about to demonstrate just how much your contributions impact the lives of those HOPE provides care for:

Mohammad is a son of a day laborer who has a very low income. When Mohammad was only two months old, a lamp fell on him while he was asleep and burnt his neck, developing a debilitating contracture. 

Mohammad was only taken to a nearby medical store after the injury. His parents were not financially sound enough to take him to a medical facility for treatment. Mohammad could not straighten his neck or carry anything due to the contracture. Boys his age tended to ignore him, and he was socially isolated from his peers. Mohammad is just 15 years old now.

The surgery was done at HOPE's third camp Mohammad is excited to start his life fresh, feeling more confident than he ever has before.

From Mohammad's family to the HOPE family, we thank you for your unwavering support to provide life-changing care for burn victims.

 

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

First Stage of Training to Take Place in November!

Help train midwives in cervical cancer screening
Help train midwives in cervical cancer screening

Dear HOPE Supporter,

We are excited to announce that the first stage of our cervical cancer project, the initial training of our doctors and staff on how to screen for breast cancer and cervical cancer using the VIA (visual inspecition with acetic acid) method wil take place this November in 2015. Our wonderful partner, Prevention International will be traveling to our hospital in Cox's Bazar to provide unprecendented training to our team. To date, there are no other cervical cancer programs like this in the area. Not only will women finally be provided this essential care, but impoverished women specifically will be provided this care. HOPE aims to reach as many women as possible in this area to prevent cervical cancer when its in its early stages and can be sucessfully treated. 

We still need to reach our goal in order to be able to implement this project on a large scale and implement an outreach program to raise awareness and notify patients of what is available to them. We hope you continue to support this critical project and please feel free to share with your friends! We sincerely thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Ashley Pugh
