Note: The picture above shows two of our volunteers, Dr. Ekaterine and Dr. Nada Alnaji feeding formula to a baby who needed our services at Hope Foundation hospital. The formula will provide this baby with the calcium that is necessary to prevent rickets.

In the last three months, Hope Foundation hospital has provided treatment of rickets for 50 children! Our committed health workers are continuing to administer door-to-door nutritional surveys to members from the Cox Bazaar community in efforts to raise their awareness of rickets and how it can be prevented with adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D. We have updated the ‘Overview’ section of this Global Giving page to provide more information on prevalence of rickets in the Cox Bazaar, Bangladesh area, and on our personal action plan for treating rickets. Please feel free to give it a glance. The update explains that Hope Foundation provides treatment for rickets and makes arrangements for patients with advanced cases to have surgery where they are referred to Ma-O-Shishu Hospital in Chittagong, Bangladesh. However, we are excited for that to change! In 2013 we will benefit from the services of a very qualified surgeon from France, Dr. Thierry Craviari, who has volunteered to perform rickets correction surgery in-house at Hope Foundation hospital to any of our patients in need.

Thank you kindly for keeping track of our page, our progress and for GIVING! We hope you can see how much your donations have improved the quality of these children’s lives. If you want to learn more about this cause or any other projects of Hope Foundation, please ask. We would love to fill you in.
