HOPE's Mothers' Clubs Supporting Safe Delivery

Women Flooding HOPE for Critical Care
Women Flooding HOPE for Critical Care

Dear HOPE Supporter,

As we begin an exciting new project providing safe delivery and pregnancy support to rural women in Cox's Bazar, our Mothers' Clubs are more active than ever. HOPE Hospital staff consulted with members of our clubs to recruit pregnant women from their villages who would, due to financial, transport, or traditional reasons, give brith at home at the hands of untrained birth attendants. They futher wouldn't understand the need for antenatal care, and most certainly would not see it as necessary for the health of themselves or their baby. As it stands today, 284 women have been enrolled to receive maternal care they are desperately need. Our efforts are greatly supported by the Mothers' Clubs who spread our messages, counsel their fellow community members and encourage better health for their communities. We are cotninuously greateful for the success our Mothers' Clubs contibute to in every project.

Best Regards,

Registering Mothers has Begun!

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your continued support of providing safe delivery for rural mothers in Cox's Bazar. We have begun registering hundreds of women who are in need of safe pregnancy education and safe delivery. Antenatal counseling has started, and our nurses feel they are making great strides with these women who otherwise are unaware of the need for antenatal care. In addition, during the group counseling meetings prenatal vitamins are distributed to the mothers in need. As the mothers' data is recorded thoroughly, our nurses make phone calls to the mothers to remind them of appointments and critical instructions they need to follow in order to ensure the safety of themselves and their babies. HOPE could not be more excited to know hundreds of women are receiving the pregnancy care they need in a region where maternal health is severely lacking.

Thank you for your support and we will continue to send updates on the project and the participants more exclusively.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

HOPE Hospital Preparing for Increased Deliveries

Pregnancy Counseling and Vitamin Distribution
Pregnancy Counseling and Vitamin Distribution

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you very much for your commitment to providing our needy in-hospital patients with food during their stay. What most people do not realize is that it is not only the hospital stay costs that deter patients from wanting to seek proper medical care services, but all of the associated costs as well. These costs include transportation from their remote villages, medication, loss of wages and food for them and their accompanying family. As HOPE works to provide all patients in need with free care if they are unable to pay, we seek support for some of the associated costs. Healthy, nutritious meals are essential for patients to recover and heal from surgeries, sickness and disease. Patients who are malnourished recover much more slowly, increasing the time they need to stay in the hospital and cannot return to work.

We are preparing for a significant increase in our in-patient maternal ward, for a great reason! A wonderful project was awarded to us whereby we provide 500 women with antenatal care, safe pregnancy and delivery education and provide 100 high risk women with delivery in our hospital. The minimum women giving birth will be 100, however the entire purpose of the project is to raise awareness among these women as to the importance of delivery by skilled professionals and not at home with an unskilled traditional birth attendant. So far the women have really enjoyed learning about their pregnancy, how best to take care of themselves, and the growing baby inside them. This project will truly save lives of so many women who die needlessly during labor. HOPE is looking forward to a full in-patient ward full of healthy new moms and their children.

As always, thank you for helping these women in need.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
