Mary Callahan, an Australian trained Registered Nurse and Midwife with over 30 years of experience has joined the Cox's Bazar Hospital for Women and Children this summer. She is currently studying for a Masters in Public Health and Tropical Medicine at James Cook University in Queensland, Australia. Her keen interest in volunteering in developing countries led her to the Hope Foundation. Mary Callahan has been helping with training the trainers at the hospital and helping with the curriculum. We have been lucky to have her on our team through July and August!
Thank you all for your support and contributions. Great work has been accomplished and we could not have done it without you!

At this moment, between April 14th and April 21st 2012, fistula surgeries are being performed at Cox's Bazar Hospital for Women and Children. Sponsored by the Fistula Foundation, these surgeries are being performed by an experienced surgeon, Dr. Arrowsmith from the US who has traveled many times to Africa to help heal poor women suffering from fistula. This is his first visit in his 30 year career of fistula surgery missions to Bangladesh. The need for these types of missions is very great in this country where so many women suffer in silence for years from obstetric fistula. With your help, and the help of our partners, Hope Foundation aims to reach out to the many women suffering in silence and help them recover from this devastating affliction. Thank you for your help.
