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,

Azida: The Child with an Incredible Spirit

Azida
Azida

Dear HOPE Supporter,

It is important for us to let you know exactly how your support changes the lives of our patients. We would like you to be introduced to Azida, a patient with an incredible spirit despite the difficult life she has lead.

Azida was just one month old when a gust of wind knocked over the candle next to her bed and lit her moquito net on fire. As she is one in a family of seven and her Father only makes $5-$7 a day as a laborer, options for burn treatment were too far and too expensive for the family.Due to the fact that she did not receive immediate care, Azida's burn wounds contracted, causing her hand and arm to fuse together. She has only had use of one arm and one hand from the time of her injury. During one of our partner ReSurge International's trips to provide care for burn patients at our hospital, the staff and ReSurge Team were taken by this young girl. Azida was playful, hopeful, and continously smiling as she worked with the team and HOPE staff. 

Your support goes to helping patients like Azida not only gain access to surgery but for follow-up care and support at our hospital for months after their surgery. Thank you for your dedication to helping burn patients in rural Bangladesh.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh

Cervical Cancer Update

A Community in Need of Cervical Cancer Awareness
A Community in Need of Cervical Cancer Awareness

Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you for your continued support in providing cervical cancer screening and treatment for girls and women in rural southeast Bangladesh. We are desperately trying to get this project up and running, but cannot begin until we have the funding necessary. As soon as we are funded, we will have our staff undergo intense training and begin a massive awareness and outreach campaign to thousands of at-risk women. At the moment, there are no programs for cervical cancer in this region, and women aren't even aware of it, depsite it being the second leading cause of death by cancer in women. Please spread the word to friends, family and anyone interested in improving global reproductive health to not only provide treatment for these women but to raise awareness in southern Bangladesh about cervical cancer.

Thank you again for your support of this important project.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
