HOPE provides essential medical care to the most vulnerable women and children in rural Bangladesh 

Established in 1999 by Dr. Iftikher Mahmood, a Bangladeshi-American, HOPE Foundation for Women and Children of Bangladesh was created with the goal of serving those most in need. Bangladesh has an extremely high maternal, infant and child mortality rate. Most of these deaths could be prevented with a mass education program of preventative health and early intervention to manage infectious conditions as well as provide basic treatment. The ratio of healthcare workers and health facilities is extremely low and consequently, the health needs of this country are vastly unmet. Medical treatment is often ill equipped to provide the necessary treatment. There are currently 300 beds in this area to treat 2 million people living in Cox’s Bazar. Dr. Mahmood, being a Pediatrician, wanted to make a profound impact on the lives of his people and provide services for those who otherwise could not afford it. Through tireless fundraising, HOPE’s team raised enough money to build a 40-bed hospital in Ramu, Cox’s Bazar, as well as 9 HOPE Medical and Birthing Centers in rural areas.

 

In addition to primary care, HOPE’s hospitals and additional medical facilities boast: Emergency & Trauma Treatment, Pediatrics, Maternal Care, Diagnostic Services, Training Center, Outreach & Education Programs and specialized care services in Fistula, Cleft and Burn Treatment and Rehabilitation. 

Beginning in 2017, with the arrival of nearly one million Rohingya Refugees in Cox's Bazar, HOPE began responding to the needs of those who has suffered grave persecution at the hands of the Myanmar government. Through the establishment of HOPE Field Hospital for Women, which remains one of the few inpatients facilities inside of the refugee camps, HOPE is treating upwards of 300 patients per day inside of the camps.
