I have visited Hope Foundation in Bangladesh once 2yrs ago and I was so impressed with the job they do to help poor people, men, women and children that I felt the need to take my young adult daughter this year.We visited in February 2017 again.We were blessed to participate in opening ceremony of a new birthing center in rural Cox’s bazar . My daughter had the same level of excitement that I had. We feel this is a very good place to donate hard earned money. Every penny donated is being used for the cause of humanity.

Now with the flood of distressed Rohinga refugees from neighboring Myanmar , hope foundation again came forward with it’s helping hands.

Dr. Iftekhar Mahmood ,the founder of Hope Foundation is a big dreamer with Hope of making our earth more beautiful. I pray that we will have more people like him for the cause of humanity.

As a volunteer for HOPE Foundation for Women & Children of Bangladesh, my role included raising money for those impoverished individuals who needed it. The funds raised goes towards medical supplies, hospital beds and much more. This foundation helps impoverished individuals attain proper health and affords them the opportunity to seek proper medical care. Thanks to the hard work of the many volunteers of HOPE Foundation, many women & children in Bangladesh will be able to live healthier lives.

I visited the HOPE Foundations hospital and saw first-hand how they are serving the people in rural Bangladesh, providing skilled surgery for fistula repair and hosting the midwifery school for 30 students. I am proud to know Dr. Iftiker Mahmood and hope his passion for his people is rewarded with support from many.

After spending two weeks with the Hope Foundation in Bangladesh, I can attest to the professionalism of this organization and the far reaching impacts of their work. The desperate need for services for women and children are being addressed in many ways. Beginning on a grassroots level with Women's Club meetings, providing support and information critical for women's health. The hospital is dedicated to midwifery education and is the only dedicated Fistula Repair Center in Bangladesh. Addressing the needs of women in remote areas by improving access to skilled birth care has been addressed with the opening of midwife led birth centers in communities that previously had no access to skilled birth attendants. The current Rohingya Muslim refugee crisis is in the community of the Hope Foundation, Cox's Bazar, and the Hope Foundation has been instrumental in addressing the medical needs of women and children in the refugee camps, setting up clinics and providing medical staff. As a local organization, Hope Foundation, is uniquely posed to address the unprecedented refugee crisis.

I volunteered for hope foundation a few years back and had a life changing experience serving those in need in Southern Bangladesh. The staff were all very warm and welcoming. I keep thinking about and praying for them all in this hard times as they strive to help the thousands of refugees who cross the borders.
