First of all, HAPPY 2022!
I hope this report finds you and your family in good health.
In this report, I will take the chance, once again, to inform you about the progress we did during the last months working in the Rohingya Refugee Camps.
The HOPE Field Hospital for Women staff was diligently trained in infection control & emergency management. They have been provided with the tools they need to safely work and protect the patients. All the hard work is paying off as we don't see a major outbreak in the area. We hope this continues.
At the Field Hospital catchment area, HOPE is distributing masks, water purification tablets, soaps, prenatal vitamins, and superfoods for pregnant women.
This is critical as the target population served is high-risk for COVID-19: pregnant women, newborns, and fistula survivors. Not to mention many patients who are served possess underlying health conditions.
Luckily, we were able to start vaccinating the refugee population recently after receiving COVID-19 vaccines from the World Health Organization. HOPE is now a designated center by the Government providing COVID vaccines to the public.
As we believe, 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.
Because you trusted us, we want to express our gratitude once again. Our work is only possible because of generous people such as yourself.
THANK YOU! Let's keep working.
