For most women, pregnancy and childbirth are extraordinary life events that bring about joy and excitement. However, in many parts of the world, especially in rural areas, like Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, pregnancy and childbirth are events that can bring about disease, injury and even death. Without adequate and accurate information, complications in pregnancy and child delivery are more likely to occur. To educate members of the community, raise awareness, dispel myths, and promote health, HOPE Mothers’ Clubs (MCs) were formed and have developed a strong presence in the area.
We want to break the cycle of poverty at a higher level and put our Mothers in a position to earn their own income and take control of their family’s health.
