Increase Care: Saving Mother's Lives

By Johanna Hansing | Development Officer

Dear friend,

As you might know, 9 in 10 women in southern Bangladesh give birth at home, without any access to trained medical help. If something goes wrong during labor, a woman is at critical risk for developing a serious injury, or death.

Injuries like these are preventable, but the health situation in Bangladesh is dire, with a ratio of only 3 doctors and 1 nurse available for every 10,000 people. Compounding this problem, 1 in 4 Bangladeshis live below the poverty line, and 70 percent of this population resides in rural areas. Many cannot afford health care, let alone transportation to reach it.

At our HOPE hospital, we provide free SAFE deliveries to those mothers who otherwise can not afford it. We are able to do so, because of generous people like you believing in our activities.

Last week we opened the second Operation Theater. Now the number of c-section & general patients will increase and we appreciate your support more than ever because it is what make our activities possible.

Thank you again, we are putting your gift right to work.

Very best,
