In just over 6 months, you helped us reach the £1 million target needed to build 7 life-saving birth clinics in Bangladesh. Now thousands of newborns will receive medical care in those crucial first days, months and years.
We recently held an event to celebrate at our first site in Pukra, north-east Bangladesh. The whole community came to find out how we’ll build these clinics and what services will be provided.
Children also came alonh, playing games and learning how the clinics will help them in the future.

And here’s Dildar, the project manager at the site of our new Pukra clinic.

You’re part of these clinics now because you gave something incredible in 2012 – a gift that will live on for generations of children to come.
Once again, thank you!
