I am currently in Bangladesh for the next ten days on a surgical mission. Everything here is looking good! The new training center has been inaugurated by the Ambassador from Japan last week, and we have many plans on how to improve the job training prospects of the local people as well as provide seminars for the local healthcare professionals in the area. Most of all this building was set up to host the Village Nurse/Birth Attendant program that YOU helped to fund in its crucial pilot program. Thank you. It is said that from little acorns, giant oaks grow. Just a little help at the right time, has enabled us to find the funding for a building. Next years program is looking to be more exciting than the last. We are still keeping the program free for the poor women who are benefitting from this course. Our current graduates are working in the field and at clinics near their homes. They are now breadwinners for their families and trained to take care of pregnant women and their babies! I will be back on April 23rd with more updates.
