October Update

Hi Everyone!

It's time for another update! This month, the MAAW Health Complex has seen over 500 patients. Much of this can be attributed to MAAWS' new gynecologist, Dr. Dilruba Akther. We have seen an increase in female patients requesting her specialty services. MAAWS is one the few facilities in the area to provide a gynecologist. 

As the rainy season slowly comes to a close, we expect to see a spike the in the number of patients. Therefore we need your immediate support. There is still a number of things we need such as lab, x-ray and other equipment. Please donate to our project so we can the supplies that we desperately need.

Thanks for all your support. It is with you that we are able to build a facility that provides quality care to the villagers of Earpur who are in turn able to make opportunities for a better life for themselves and their families.

May Update

Hi!

We’re our long over due for an update but we have been working diligently to install new tube wells in communities and schools in the village of Earpur in Senbagh, Noakhali, Bangladesh. To date, we have installed 11 tube wells with your support. Over 1000 people now have access to clean water.

1000 people now have access to the most essential element of life: water. Water changes lives. Access to clean water lowers the rate of waterborne illness, increases the enrollment of children in school, especially girls, and promotes healthier living. Without your support, none of this would be possible.

Within the next few months, we will be installing even more tube wells so stay tuned for the next project report. But in the meantime, please check out our newest project, the MAAWS Health Complex, on GlobalGivng: www.tinyurl.com/gghealthcomplex.

Over 30,000 people in the Senbagh/Begumganj area of Noakhali, Bangladesh do not have access to basic health care. In order to meet obvious need for health care, MAAWS is building a Health Complex in rural Bangladesh.

Please get your family, friends and colleagues involved. Together we can all work to provide people with the opportunities to uplift themselves out of poverty.

Best,

Juhi
