Village Provider Network Set to Refer Patients

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Finding patients in remote areas is difficult work considering many villages are difficult to reach. We had to think of a way to reach more patients in remote regions in a sustainable way, and that is when we came up with the Village Provider Network. This network is made up of village pharmacists who are leaders in their villages and sought after for medical advice. We thought if we can include them in our network, educate them on pertinent issues, diseases and the services we offer, developing a referral system would be momentous in referring patients. So that is what we did.

At the end of 2015 we brought 50 providers together for a training and orientation program. Now these providers are further trained on first response in burn care and know to refer patients to HOPE Hospital for burn reconstructive surgery and care. The Village Providers in exchange are supported with supplies, medicine and family discount cards to give to their customers to use at HOPE. It’s truly a win-win situation for both HOPE and the providers, and they have already begun referring a lot of patients to us for care. We could not be more pleased with this new outreach initiative.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Ashley Pugh

This Woman and her Baby were Saved

An Educated Mother and her Newborn
An Educated Mother and her Newborn

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your continued support of our work. I wanted to share with you a special story. Just last week I was visiting our projects and speaking to members in the community. The woman pictured here proudly came out of her home to let me know that she received an emergency cesarean section for her baby that she was holding. When I spoke with the translator as to how she knew she should go to the hospital, she informed me that HOPE's field workers had spoken to her about the importance of taking action during prolonged labor. She then sought care and her and her baby are doing great today. This story demonstrates to us that women just need the knowledge that is so critical to their and their baby's lives, and if they have the knowledge, they will do what is necessary. There is nothing more beautiful than a mother who is boastful that she knew what action to take during her labor, that would save her and her child's life and prevent morbidities such as obstetric fistula. Thank you for supporting such a life-saving project.

Sincerely,

Ashley Pugh

New Mothers Receiving Care

Expectant Mother About to Deliver
Expectant Mother About to Deliver

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Your committment to supporting patients during their stay at HOPE Hospital has reached a new group of patients. A new project providing safe pregnancy and delivery care is being supported by this project. The project aims to prevent maternal mortality and childbirth injuries like obstetric fistula by educating mothers, providing her with essential pregnancy care and referring her to a clinic with a skilled professional when her pregnancy is high risk. Just last week HOPE hosted the HOPE Maternal Health and Fistula Conference 2016 in Bangladesh and while I was at the hospital I spoke to several women who were about to deliver or who had just delivered, and needed the support as they could not afford food. Many of the women were from great distances and their families were unable to travel with them, therefore they could not provide them the food they needed. It is essential that mothers regain their strength and nutrition, particularly as they breastfeed. Thank you for providing such essential support to these vulnerable women.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
