Happy Holidays!

As this year is winding down and coming to a close, here is an update before you unplug for the holiday season. December has been a busy month for the MAAWS Health Complex. We held two vaccines programs. On December 15, we had a vaccine program for children and young adults treating 199 patients. On December 21, we held a polio vaccine program treating 189 people.

We have many other exciting projects out in the horizon. We opened the MAAWS Health Complex and have seen over 2,400 patients in the past year. 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,

October 2013 Update

Hi,

Here's an update on our project so far. At the end of June, we celebrated our 1 year anniversary. To date, we have had over 2,400 visits to the MAAWS Health ComplexOver 83% of our patients are women and children. We have seen an increase in female patients requesting specialty services because MAAWS is one the few facilities in the area to have a gynecologist on staff. 

In our first year, we have been able to institute a monthly children's immunization program and Vitamin A campaign. We also hosted an eye treatment camp in partnership with Bangladesh Jatio Andha Kalyan Somity (BJAKS) Hospital in Comilla at the MAAWS Health Complex. We had 300 villagers in attendance and 196 of them were treated for eye-related issues. 20 patients were found to be in need of surgery, 48 patients received prescriptions for glasses while the rest of the patients received general treatment. Those 20 patients were transported to BJAKS to recieve further surgery and treatment. We have also started a montly children's hygience education campaign teaching the basics such as hand-washing a intervention against illness. 

Currently, we are working on obtaining and implementing an medical records software in order to have better patient records. We have also recieved a new sonograph machine from a generous organization. Starting next month, we'll be able to provide more targeted treatments and interventions for expecting mothers.

We cannot thank you enough for your faith in us and believing in our mission. I know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, but you believe in our cause, so you chose to invest it in our project. Because of this investment, I want you to feel like part of our team. We're in this together. I want our success to be your success. Together we can all work to provide people with the opportunities to uplift themselves out of poverty.

Please tell your friends and family about our project by sharing the link on your blogs or social networks.

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

Best,

Juhi
