We’re Helping in the Rohingya Refugee Crisis
In August 2017, an influx of Rohingya people crossed the border from Myanmar, fleeing persecution. For the last 35 years, the Rohingya have been excluded from citizenship, rendering them stateless. In recent years, they have become victims of ethnic cleansing through murder, torture, rape, abuse and starvation. The situation escalated quickly as hundreds of thousands of refugees arrived, but the HOPE team was able to mobilize on the ground in less than 10 days – making us one of the first local responders to the world’s fastest-growing humanitarian crisis.
HOPE continues to provide critical health care to this vulnerable community through our newly opened HOPE Field Hospital for Women, the first 24/7 Bangladeshi-run field hospital operating in the refugee camps, and the only facility to utilize solar energy as a main source of power. We’re also operating 10 mobile health clinics inside the Kutupalong/Balukhali refugee camps and manage the largest fleet of emergency vehicles operating around the clock.
“For individuals wondering how to help, there are fine organizations working on the ground in the camps, among them…the Hope Foundation for Women and Children of Bangladesh.“ – Nicholas Kristof, in the New York Times

HOPE Foundation’s Journey to a Fistula Free Bangladesh
HOPE Foundation aims to eradicate obstetric fistula from Bangladesh. We collaborate with maternal health organizations around the world and are developing multiple programs and projects to achieve our ambitious goal. In 2018, we completed a record 100 fistula surgeries, in one year! We are currently building the first Fistula Center in Cox’s Bazar and aim to build similar centers in other parts of Bangladesh. We hope to see fistula free Bangladesh!
