Dear HOPE Supporter,

Thank you very much for your generous donation to HOPE's project dedicated to training birth attendants! Your support has afforded us to make great strides in continuing our first ever Bangladeshi recognized Midwifery program! At present, our students are working hard in their electives. The girls have visited local hospitals and clinics to lend their support, spread awareness about critical women's health issues and even recruited obstetric fistula patients for our upcoming Fistula Repair Camp. This is an incredible accomplishment, as finding and encouraging fistula patients to come forward is very difficult. At the moment, HOPE is looking to recruit 50 more local girls for next year's class. We are remaining on track to train and disburse hundreds of midwives into the local communition, particulary the remore villages, in order to prevent Obstetric Fistula, conduct family planning, increse maternal care, and most importantly, practice safe delivery. The more midwivse we train, the more lives we can save, of both infants and their Mothers! Thank you again for your dedicated support to this incredible cause.

Best Regards,

Ashley Pugh
