HOPE Featured in The UK Telegraph Article

Dear HOPE Friends,

Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla - Chairperson of HOPE featured in The Telegraph UK Article regarding Pakistan Floods and Maternal/Infant Mortality Rates Increasing
 

"There has already been a surge in maternal and infant mortality since the onset of the floods, according to Dr Mubina Agboatwalla, the chairperson of Health Oriented Preventive Education (Hope), a Pakistani NGO working to improve the health of the country’s poor.

“Initially, I was hearing about a couple of deaths in camps set up for those displaced by flooding, but now I am regularly hearing about deaths among mothers in all the flood affected areas. The situation is terrible,” said Dr Agboatwalla. “Also, many of these babies are now being born without resuscitation facilities and so if they survive they can suffer from birth hypoxia, where they have a disability or can be more vulnerable to a disease like meningitis.”

Before the flooding, Pakistan already had one of the highest maternal mortality rates in Asia, with 186 deaths per 100,000 births, according to the Pakistan Maternal Mortality Survey in 2020."

HOPE USA has a long-standing history in Pakistan (24 years) and specializes exclusively in poverty alleviation efforts within the country. We have been active in flood relief efforts since Day 1. Our areas of impact so far have included Karachi (and urban slums within), Thatta, Badin Sujawal, Balochistan, Larkana, Sukkur, Shikarpur, Dadu, Rajanpur, Punjab, and we will also be providing extensive relief to Swat Valley (shown in our pictures) which has experienced unprecedented destruction. These areas are the most impacted in the country and very few people (organizations) are providing relief to victims in these locales.
