Welcome! to HOPE Foundation for Women & Children of Bangladesh
Founded in 1999, HOPE Foundation for Women and Children of Bangladesh aims to provide health services to needy people in Bangladesh, particularly the women and children in rural areas. Over 90% of rural women give birth at home with no trained medical personnel present. As a result, three women die every hour due to pregnancy and childbirth complications. 48.6% of Bangladesh’s children under the age of 5 are chronically malnourished. Millions of children and women are suffering from preventable conditions. HOPE works tirelessly to serve those who otherwise could not afford healthcare. HOPE is working towards the following important United Nations Millennium Development Goals:
- Reduce Child Mortality, Improve Maternal Health
- Combat HIV/Aids
- Malaria and other Diseases
- Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
- Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger.
Through HOPE Hospital and our HOPE Medical Centers, we are reaching over 30,000 women and children a year. Please join us and support our work. In addition to maternal, child and primary health care, HOPE Foundation also provides specialized care through our international partners in the following health areas:
- Smile Train completed 15 cleft surgeries in March!
- ReSurge International visits Cox’s Bazar to assess burn and trauma treatment need.
- Dr. Steven Arrowsmith from Michigan, USA will return in May to hold HOPE’s 4th Fistula Repair Camp!
- An Opthalmology Team from University of Malaya will visit HOPE in May to execute eye care and restorative surgeries.
