HOPE Launches its 11th MCHC ๐Ÿฅ in Collaboration with the Azad Kashmir ๐Ÿ”๏ธ Department of Health

Updated: May 21

Dear HOPE Friends,

We are excited to share with you the latest addition to our fleet of Maternal ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿผ & Child ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป Health Centers ๐Ÿฅ in the Northern Areas ๐Ÿ”๏ธof Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ!

On May 3, 2024, in conjunction with the Azad Kashmir Department of Health, HOPE launched a MCHC ๐Ÿฅ in Chakhama, Azad Kashmir ๐Ÿ”๏ธ. This facility will provide 24/7 healthcare ๐Ÿฉบ (with a special focus on maternal ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿผ and child ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป services) to the surrounding village ๐Ÿ›– population.

The Azad Kashmir ๐Ÿ”๏ธ Department of Health has donated a vacant facility ๐Ÿฅ and medical supplies ๐Ÿฉบ in order to propel this project forward. HOPE will be contributing their expertise in terms of medical staff for this endeavor.

Maternal ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿผand Infant ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป Mortality is adversely high in Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ due to various factors including high ๐Ÿ“ˆ poverty rates as well as the general lack ๐Ÿšซof government-sponsored interventions for the poor. It is not surprising that in remote and rural areas this problem is further compounded due to the dearth ๐Ÿšซ of healthcare facilities ๐Ÿฅ in these regions - traditionally mothers ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿผ in the Northern Areas ๐Ÿ”๏ธ of Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ have given birth in their homes. Unfortunately, when labor complications have arisen, healthcare facilities are often too far away to access in a timely manner. And even if facilities ๐Ÿฅ are present, most villagers cannot afford basic human rights such as healthcare ๐Ÿฉบ ._

HOPE has taken the window of opportunity to bridge the gap in the well-researched fact that 33% of Maternal ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿผ deaths and 80% of Infant ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป deaths in Pakistan ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ are preventable. We have made it a priority to save precious lives โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน. To date, we honored to report that with this latest addition, we currently operate a total of 11 MCHCs, 4 Hospitals, 1 Basic Health Unit, and 2 Mobile Health Units throughout Pakistan

Please join us in our efforts - your generous donation towards these endeavors is readily helping us to save lives:

๐Ÿ”ท $10: Support 3 Prenatal Visits for a Pregnant Mother ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿผ

๐Ÿ”ท $20: Support the Cost of 2 Ultrasounds ๐Ÿšผ
