Rickets Treatment for Children in Bangladesh

My trip to Bangladesh - April 2011

I visited Bangladesh in April to meet with the American Ambassador to Bangladesh, Hon. James Moriarty who made a trip to visit our Hope Foundation hospital in Cox's Bazar. The trip was an opportunity for me to sit with our Country Director Mr. Jalal Uddin Shoaib who is in charge of all Hope projects in Bangladesh.

The rickets surgery project is a difficult one involving a fairly expensive surgery, even by Bangladesh's standards. We are therefore focusing on prevention by distributing calcium tablets, education and early intervention. In association with another large organization in Bangladesh dedicated to the welfare of the paralyzed, we will also provide rickets surgery to those whose condition is so extreme that surgery is necessary.

Our new training center is being built. This will help with all our efforts at preventive education and outreach to the very rural areas where medical care is non-existent.

Meanwhile, we are continuing to raise money to help children suffering from rickets and other preventable diseases.
