Your Donation to Feed Hospital Patients

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Happy Holidays! We want to thank you for your commitment in supporting hospital patients who do not have the money to even afford their medication. This project is ensuring that patients who come to HOPE Hospital are provided the basic needs to support their recovery. A large part of any sick patient's recovery starts with the right nutrition and your generous gift is supporting just that. In 2015 HOPE treated 25% more children with pneumonia, Enteric Fever and malaria than any year prior. These children's health have taken a serious toll and they have a long road ahead of them. Your gift of ensuring they are fed a full, nutritious meal makes all the difference for their recovery. During this holiday season, we want to remind you of how impactful your gift has been on the lives of vulnerable children. Thank you again for your support and we wish you a happy new year in 2016.

Sincerely,

Ashley Pugh

Support to New Safe Birth Initiative!

Dear Friend of HOPE,

Thank you for supporting HOPE's Mothers' Clubs, an integral component of our outreach work. I want to share with you what they have been up to recently. We just began a project to provide 1,000 women with antenatal care and to ensure safe delivery for all of the mothers. In addition to providing them services, we are additionally providing counseling and educational support so mothers are given the knowledge they need to keep themselves and their babies safe and healthy. Our Mothers' Clubs have been tasked with creating awareness in the rural villages regarding this project, and going door to door to pregnant women's homes to let them know what care is available to them. The Mothers' Clubs further let the pregnant women understand why it is important to receive proper care during their pregnancy. This is especially important for first time mothers and the younger women in the community who are not aware. We are particularly grateful for the work of our Mothers' Clubs working tirelessly on such critical initiatives. Thank you for your support of this project and for helping women gain access to services and knowledge to keep their families healthy.

Sincerely,

Ashley Pugh

Meet Ayesha, a Star Student!

Ayesha

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your unwavering support of training local girls as skilled birth attendants and tranforming maternal health in rural Bangladesh. We would like to introduce you to Ayesha, one of our first graduating students! Ayesha is one of our star students and very passionate about helping mothers. Read below to hear why she chose to go into midwifery:

Ayesha is from Muhuri Para, Jhilongjha, Cox’s Bazar Sadar, Cox’s Bazar. She is from a family of seven. Her father is a day laborer and he is the main provider of their family. Her mother is active in encouraging her children to continue their education despite their socioeconomic status, which is quite unique. Ayesha is the only person who has completed higher secondary in her family therefore no one could guide her to study science which could have been helpful from the beginning, she recollects. She says she is fortunate to be able to participate in this programme as students are accepted on a more rounded basis irrespective of academic background alone.

 Upon graduation she wants to work in her community and she expects that it will bring positive changes in her life. She believes if she can graduate as a skilled midwife, community people will accept her which will open the door to help the community people; and this in turn will appear as a source of income as well to change her life. In her community she reports many welcome this profession no matter how old she is; to them, knowledge and skill matter the most to provide needed services.

Ayesha was found knowledgeable about the healthcare services in her community where currently no midwives or nurses exist. Ayesha strongly believes she and one of her classmates can play a pivotal role in their community. She talks about the low level of hygiene and sanitation that causes diarrhea and other bacterial diseases which plague younger children the most and how she can address these issues. Ayesha looks forward to being financially independent and leading a positive life in her community. She is grateful the opportunity has provided her with.

Thank you for your continued support in our work.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
