Two Combined Projects are Better than One

Dear HOPE Supporter,

It is with great delight that I inform you that we have combined this wonderful prject of providing safe delivert to rural mothers with another project of ours; providing antenatal care in the home of 500 mothers. Our reasoning for combining these two projects is simple: 7% of women in our area experience high-risk pregnancy. Our project afording us to provide antenatal care to 500 mothers does not have in its budget a cost for mothers who desperately need to give birth in a hospital setting or to receive a cesarean section. HOPE staf and doctors are not comfortable in notifying our patients they are high risk and not providing a solution; this is where this Global Giving project comes into play! We want to ensure another mother and child does not die during delivery under our watch. 

Please help us continue providing an essential service to these families; in providing safe delivery you are not saving one life, but two.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

HOPE's Annual Report is In!

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your continued support in helping us feed 150 of our patients in great need. Please find attached HOPE's 2013 Annual Report, which details our achievements last year. You will learn just how many patients we saw last year, what the highest diseases and conditions we treated were last year, and read about our specialized projects. Your support in providing food to hospital patients not only serves our day-to-day in-patients but also provides food to our patients involved in special camps such as our cleft lip/palate and obstetric fistula repair camps. The work done last year will serve as benchmarks for us to surpass in 2014. All of this work was made possible by donors like YOU, and we could not be more thankful. Please take a look at the work you made possible, and the lives of those you have changed forever.

Sincerely,

Ashley Pugh

Birth Attendants- The Way Forward

A birth attendant receives additional training.
A birth attendant receives additional training.

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Did you know that every year in Bangladesh 3 million women become pregnant, and out of that 3 million an estimated 600,000 are expected to develop complications? Complications range from obstetric fistula, urinary incontinence, infection, post-partum hemorrhage and so much more. Utilizing the birth attendants we have already trained, these women have gone above and beyond to educate the communities in which they live and serve as to the importance of maternal care. Due to an increase in education, 147 ultrasounds have been performed in the first two months of 2014 alone. The number of rural women seeking ultrasound services has improved dramatically, indicating that our birth attendants are hard at work raising awareness for preventive care and services prior to delivery. A simple ultrasound can let the doctor, birth attendant and patient know whether the mother is experiencing a high-risk pregnancy due to fetal positioning, a narrow birth canal, and other factors that lead to a dangerous birth at home. It is with the trust these patients have formed with their birth attendants, all local women, hat have enabled this breakthrough in access to services. Thank you for your support in this endeavor. We couldn't do it without you.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
