The COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting the Rohingya Refugee Camps. We are putting much effort into the providing the services and the meeting the needs that this community requires. HOPE opened 2 new Isolation Units with 50 bed capacity each, one to serve the host community of Cox’s Bazar and another one inside the Rohingya Refugee Camps in the area. This was a great spet forward in the fight against the virus in Cox's Bazar.
HOPE Hospital staff was diligently trained and provided with the tools they need to safely work and protect the patients. This is critical as the target population served by these centers, as you know, are high-risk for COVID-19: pregnant women, newborns and fistula survivors. Not to mention many patients who are served possess underlying health conditions.
Organizations like HOPE Foundation, which are already deeply rooted in local communities, are in the best position to provide immediate and long-term support for survivors of outbreaks and other crises. Our long-term work in southern Bangladesh has positioned us as a leader in providing consistent, high-quality medical care to those in need.
Thank you, because this is only possible counting with generous people such as yourself.

COVID-19 wont stop us, we keep working.

Dear HOPE Friend,
Without your support, expecting mothers would not have been able to give birth in a safe environment with the ability to address any complications and save the mother and newborn from danger.
Your generosity has helped many women to receive quality healthcare by qualified HOPE midwives, who are passionate about maternal care and now fighting at the forefront of the global pandemic.
We keep facing a challenging situation with the consequences of the current pandemic.
COVID-19 is even more dangerous to the people living in underdeveloped countries as they don't have the resources to fight back. Therefore, we are utilizing all our resources to ensure that our patients as well as HOPE staff are keeping safe.
All the midwives in HOPE facilities, and the entire team, is provided with extra Personal Protective Equipment and also extra trained in Infectious Diseases Control to minimize the spread of any virus. We also open areas to treat specific COVID-19 patients separately.
We are strong, doing everything we can to take care of the people in need of essential/lifesaving medical care. We are very thankful for your support to make this type of activities possible.
We are truly grateful that you have been able to help us along the way and be part of the team.
Thank you again for believing in our work.

Dear HOPE friend,
The Mothers Club are an essential tool to educate the community about this global pandemic, how the virus spreads and how to protect each other to minimize its consequences.
the population we serve don't have any other reliable source of information as they live in rural remote areas.
Currently we are focus on proper and washing trainings and infection control information together with the distribution of masks and water purification tablets.
To pregnant women we have a special package that also includes prenatal vitamins and super-food.
We take out job seriously, therefore we took all the necessary measurements to provide a safe environment for these important meetings to happen.
Thank you for your support, as we are fighting COVID with the resources we have access thanks to generous people such as yourself.
