Hi!

 

We've been up to a lot of things in 2013. We were officially approved by the Bangladesh Civil Surgeon to administer immunizations in our ward.  

In March, we gave 100 children Vitamin A supplements as part of the National Vitamin A Plus Campaign.
Vitamin A capsules will help eliminate blindness among children by improving their eyesight as well as enhance children's growth and immune system. We also held 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. 

 

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

Hi Everyone,

I hope all of you are slowly winding down and getting to spend some time with your loved ones this holiday season. Before we all tune out for the New Year, I wanted to provide you with some updates of the MAAWS Health Complex.  
Since opening in June, we have seen over 600 patients to date. Over 83% of our patients are women and children. At present, we are providing primary care to our patients but with the latest addition of 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.

In October, we opened up a Pathology Department and hosted a free blood grouping session and a free workshop taught by Shomin, a lab technician supervisor from Chittagong Diabetic Hospital, about erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). Three of our students sat and passed the certification exam. 

In such a short time we have been able to accomplish much and this is without a doubt because of your support. 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.

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.

Dear Donors

Happy Holidays! I hope you all are enjoying so time off. On behalf of MAAWS, I wish you all the best in the upcoming New Year. Without your support, our organization would not be where it is today.

I just wanted to give you a quick update of the current progress of our Health Complex. Take a look at the photos below. We have a lot going in the next couple of months! Three physicians (an internist and two pediatricians) from the US are coming to visit the Health Complex in the upcoming weeks. We are set to open at the end of February. 

Be on the lookout for more updates from MAAWS. You can also visit our website www.maaws.org for more information.

Thank you again for all your support. We look forward to developing more exciting programs in the upcoming New Year!

Best,

Juhi
