Hope Foundation

Hope Foundation provides healthcare to the underserved women and children in rural 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 HOPE Medical Centers, this organisation is reaching over 30,000 women and children a year. In addition to maternal, child and primary health care, HOPE Foundation also provides specialized care through our international partners in the following health areas:

  • Obstetric Fistula
  • Burn
  • Cleft Lip/ Palate
  • Trauma
