How is it Already August? A MAAWS Mid Year Update

Say AHHH
Say AHHH

Hi Friend of MAAWS,

Lots of exciting developments of happened over the last few months. In 2014, we have suprassed our own targets and have treated 1,039 patients. We are in the midst of constructing a brand new burn unit to be tentatively opening within the year.

We say this again and again, but truly NONE of this could be done with without your help. Every $1 helps ensure that the patients that come to the MAAWS Health Complex will recieve the best quality care, free of cost to them. I know the economy is tough so thank you for investing not only in our cause but also in the future of our community. 

We are currently running a microproject to raise $3,000 for the health complex by September 25. Please consider asking your friends and family to give to our project on GlobalGIving (http://bit.ly/1qHj84N). Share the link social networks or just bring us up in conversation. Tell your family and friends why you believe in our project. Here’s a template e-mail to get you started

If you want to learn about more ways you can help, feel free to contact me at juhi.mawla@maaws.org

Thank you again for all you have done to help this cause.

With gratitude,

Juhi Mawla

A World With Water

Thanks to you more families have access to water
Thanks to you more families have access to water

Hi Friends of MAAWS,

Since starting the Pure Drinking Water and Sanitation Project in 2008, we have installed over 200 tube wells with your help. Thanks to you many families now envision a world that is healthier because they have access to clean and safe drinking water. In the upcoming months, we have plans to install 5 more tubewells in our project area. Stay tuned for more reports and photos. 

We opened the MAAWS Health Complex in June 2012. Since opening we have seen and treated 2,500 patients. We still need a lot of support for this project to purchase medications, supplies and much needed diagnostic equipment. You can check out our project and donate at www.tinyurl.com/gghealthcomplex

We cannot thank you enough for your faith in us and believing in our mission. Together we can all work to provide people with the opportunities to uplift themselves out of poverty.

 

Best,

Juhi

A Visit from Global Giving

In April, GlobalGiving Field Intern Neha Tummala visited MAAWS' project site in the village of Earpur in Senbagh, Noakhali, Bangladesh. She visited our Health Complex, Sewing Project and water projects. She met with families that are beneficiaries of the water projects and the MAAWS Health Complex doctors.

She says: “My favourite part was interacting with the families who I met, as well as meeting your doctors! Both the doctors that I met were truly inspirational as they travel so far to come to Noakhali to serve the community. Beyond medical care, your doctors and staff are not afraid to have tough conversations on topics such as prevention, awareness work, religion and many more things. I learned a lot and I am really glad that I was able to come to visit the project.”

We were so glad to have you Neha!

In this past quarter, we saw 491 patients! We still need a lot of support for this project, so please in this time of giving think of the 30,000 people in the Senbagh/Begumganj area of Noakhali, Bangladesh that do not have access to basic health care. You can check out our project and donate at www.tinyurl.com/gghealthcomplex

We cannot thank you enough for your faith in us and believing in our mission. Together we can all work to provide people with the opportunities to uplift themselves out of poverty.

 

Best,

Juhi
