Your Help is Greatly Needed

Patients YOU Supported
Patients YOU Supported

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your valuable donations to providing food for patients at HOPE Hospital. As HOPE does not turn a single patient away and will bear the cost of medical treatment for patients unable to pay, these same patients are unable to afford food during their hospital stay either. As we are caring for an increased amount of admitted patients, our need for your help is even greater. In just the first two months of 2014, HOPE provided care to 2,198 individuals in great need. These numbers are comprised of out-patient, in-patient, surgery and delivery. Many of these patients were served free of charge but the hospital needs additional support to fed them. Proper nutrition is essential to healing, and therefore cannot be dismissed out of the treatment process.  Please help us continue to provide our patients with the care they need.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

Burn Care: Raising Awareness

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Since HOPE Foundation held its first-ever burn camp in the fall of 2013, we have seen an increase in patients coming to our hospital to receive care for their burns. Burn injuries are very common in south Asia where parental supervision is lacking, as well as where open cooking fires are common in most rural homes. Women and young girls who are tasked with the responsibility of cooking for the family are often wearing ill-fitting clothing that tends to catch in the fire. Burn injuries are disabling as the limb or area injured often loses its functionality without immediate proper care. HOPE has a high amount of patients in our catachment area who need corrective surery to restore functionability, as well as new cases that need to be treated right away. Thanks to our partner in burn care, Resurge International, and their training of our staff, HOPE Hospital is able to provide unparalleled care in burn, for the region. We continue to see burn patients on a continuous basis, and are ecstatic to see the ncreased awareness Resurge and our burn camp brought to Cox's Bazar.

Thank you for your support and we can't wait to continue changing the lives of burn victims.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

Gearing up for this Year's Exciting Projects

Dear HOPE Supporter,

HOPE Foundation is very excited to begin our new maternal health projects set for 2014 as well as continue our impactful established projects. As always, our Mothers' Clubs will be instrumental in implementing all maternal health projects. This year HOPE Foundation will be adding on to our obstetric fistula program. A grant from Henry E. Niles will allow us to begin an entrepreneurship program to train a group of HOPE's fistula patients who endured great social and financial struggle while they were living with fistula, in seamstress skills as well as help support them with business skills and supplies to start their own businesses. Our Mothers' Clubs will help with the recruitment of fistula survivors, advertising of the women's businesses and raising awareness. A second grant from Dining for Women will allow us to build and train a specialized fistula team to do more repair surgeries per year as well as reach more women. Our Outreach Coordinator will be working with the Mothers' Clubs to provide presentations and deliver education about fistula during their community sessions. The Outreach Coordinator will furthermore work with the Mothers' Clubs to recruit patients, counsel current patients in their communities and reintegrate patients to their respective villages after successful fistula surgery. Our Mothers' Clubs have increasingly critical roles in all of our maternal health projects and we are grateful to you for your continued support. We look forward to updating you on how these projects progress throughout the year!

 

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
