Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you very much for your generous support to our project: Feed 150 Hospital patients in Bangladesh! Due to your incredible donations, HOPE has utilized your support for admitted patients that could not afford meals otherwise. Moreover, HOPE is hosting a burn repair camp, to be implemented by Resurge International, a USA based charitable organization focused on treating burn injuries. During this camp, whereby we hope to provide surgery to women and children who have been victims of burn accidents, HOPE will use the suport we have garnered for this project to feed these patients! Currently one third of all global deaths resulting from severe burns occurs in South Asia, and due to the use of open fires for cooking and lighting in impoverished regions of Bangladesh, we have a lot of work ahead of us to begin providing burn care. This camp will help those women and children who have been disabled by their untreated burns through plastic surgery to restore function and movement to destroyed body parts and help them return to work or school! This is a huge project that will begin to meet such a high need and your donations are helping us to do this. 

Thank YOU again for your incredible committment to helping those truly in need. Your support is invaluable to the women and children of Bangladesh.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

Rickets Project Complete

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your generous suport to HOPE's project treating children with Rickets. Cox's Bazar has one of the rarest forms of Rickets in the world and the debilitation is still being studied by international experts. With the donations we received from you, we trated many children, particularly those with reversible Rickets; that is, we were able to reverse their condition through providing them with continuous supplements and counseling their mothers on appropriate nutrition. This is a huge success. Surgery for irreversible Rickets is costly, complicated and takes an incredibly specialized surgeon hours to perform. HOPE decided that in roder to better serve the children of Cox's Bazar and to best prevent Rickets, we would revamp our project to treat malnutrition. The help of Dr. Ekaterine, a Pediatrican from Georgia, HOPE Foundation was able to conudct a malnutrition study while treating children who were greatly suffering. HOPE has realized this is the most cost effective and sustainable approach to preventing Rickets as well as best serving children in need. Children with irreversible Rickets will continue to be seen at HOPE Hospital and referred to a specialist who will is apt to perform required surgery. HOPE is excited to announce this shift in program to our supporters, as we feel we will reach mroe children and prevent Rickets from occuring at all. Thank you again for your incredible support, it is truly affected the lives of so many Bangladeshi children.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

Reaching those Most Remote!

Mothers
Mothers' Club Member at her Monthly Meeting

HOPE's Mothers' Clubs continue to be at the forefront of all of our projects, helping HOPE Foundation push forward into territory others cannot access. Our Mothers' Clubs continue to gain more responsibility for assisting in HOPE's projects, particularly HOPE's Obstetric Fistula program. The Mothers' Clubs are essential for HOPE to continue locating women who are candidates for obstetric fistula surgery as these women are truly difficult to find. They are hidden in the shadows and forced to live an isolated life due to the shame and embarrassment they bring upon their families resulting from the constant leaking of urine and feces. Other organizations are unable to identify these women because it is taboo to discuss them in the community. HOPE's Mothers' Clubs are not only working to educate themselves and their neighbors about what Obstetric Fistula is and how to prevent it, but are providing HOPE unique access into some of the most remote regions in order to take us to those women who really need help. They are assisiting HOPE to bring these women out of the dark and into a better life where they enjoy healing and reintegrating into their communities.

HOPE has come to continuously rely on the help from our Mothers' Clubs to publicize our campagins and raise awareness for our specialized care projects like cleft lip and palate. Without them those that are most in need would never hear about the work we are doing and would miss the opportunity to be given a second chance. HOPE is determined to keep establishing additional Clubs in order to reach never before accessed villages and bring quality healthcare to those who are unable to afford it. 

HOPE's Mothers' Clubs will be instrumental for our upcoming specialized care camps in Obstetric Fistula and Cleft Lip/Palate so stay tuned!
