Changing for the better does not mean goodbye

Thank you to everyone that donated to HOPE's Cervical Cancer Project in Rural Bangladesh. As a result of your efforts, we have been able to conduct outreach in the community and form partnerships to provide cervical screenings! This is very exciting for us because improving maternal health to reduce maternal mortality is our passion.

As such, after doing thorough research and evaluating our program, we have decided to end the Cervical Cancer Project and combine its efforts with two other projects we have: 1) Provide SAFE Delivery for Rural Mothers and 2) Support HOPE's Mothers' Clubs in Bangladesh.  By combining our efforts, HOPE can continue to serve and provide support for those with cervical cancer AND reach even more mothers' in need of critical care and life saving surgeries.  Supporting HOPE's Mothers' Clubs contribute to these efforts because of their outreach campaigns in communities around Cox's Bazar (the site in which our hospital is located).  These mothers are in the field encouraging fellow women in their communities to seek medical services to ensure safe deliveries and are providing health education on proper antenatal care, breastfeeding, and other health issues that affect them and their families.  

You can see these projects on GlobalGiving and keep up with us on our website, Facebook, and Twitter.  We are constantly monitoring our programs so we can improve and change for the better.  We hope that you will continue to support us as we strive to provide vulnerable women and children in rural Bangladesh with quality healthcare and services so that they can lead productive and meaningful lives free of illness and disease.

Mothers' Club in Action!

Mothers
Mothers' Club In Session

For most women, pregnancy and childbirth are extraordinary life events that bring about joy and excitement.  But in many parts of the world, especially in rural areas like Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, pregnancy and childbirth are events that can bring about disease, injury and even death, unfortunate instances that many of us in the developed world, will never have to deal with, or even think about. 

Without adequate and accurate information, complications in pregnancy and child delivery are more likely to occur.  To educate members of the community, raise awareness, dispel myths, and promote health, HOPE Mothers’ Clubs (MCs) were formed and have developed a strong presence and growing following in the area.

You can see from the photo one of our MCs in action (along with some of their children), discussing the importance of antenatal and postnatal care! These are just a couple of the topics that our mothers are able to freely speak about, as they are in the safe and welcoming environment of an MC gathering.

The knowledge that Mothers' Club leaders and members are sharing in the community have been instrumental to HOPE's success.  As a result of their dedication and hard work, HOPE has been able to provide over 400 antenatal care checkups.  Your understanding and generosity are what enable these Mothers' Clubs to spread vital health information and encourage others in the community to seek healthcare and in turn reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Expanding Local Network for Patient Recruitment

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your continued support to helping children with severe burns. While we continue to provide follow-up care for our patients who have already received surgical care, our team is busy on the ground identifying patients who are eligible for surgery. While there are many patients in need of life-changing surgery, those in remote communities are unaware that they can get the help they need at HOPE Hospital. Our team is therefore constantly looking to raise awareness and reach communities who might not have heard about our program before. We want to ensure that the efforts of our team are most effective and have recently started a new stratey. We are networking with local doctors to notify them of the care that we provide and the fact that they can refer patients to us at any stage after the patient's injury. This has resulted in a great increase in patients referred to us, and we are looking forward to these patients going back home and spreading the word about our burn program.

Thank you again for your help, it is most sincerely appreciated by our patients.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
