Cure for Women and Children
You can help. Give her hope.
Help shine a light into the lives of poor women and children in Bangladesh who are in desperate need of medical treatment. Cure for Women and Children (CWC), a project under Human Concern International, is working together with three established local organizations to provide medical access to some of the most vulnerable women and young children in Bangladesh.

What is Obstetric Fistula?
A condition where a woman develops a hole(s) between the birth canal and a woman’s internal organs due to prolonged or obstructed labour that can last more than three days. As a result, the woman suffers from continuous leaking of urine and feces. The constant foul smell forces these women to be rejected and isolated from their families, and eventually, outcast from society.
What is Uterine Prolapse?
Sometimes known as ‘uterus hanging from vagina,’ uterine prolapse commonly occurs due to multiple births, prolonged labour, or a weak pelvic floor. Almost all of these women are illiterate, poor, and unware that treatment is available; or cannot access nor afford it.
Give hope to the littlest of patients
At the Dhaka Medical College Hospital, the hardworking Special Care Neonatal Unit offers treatment to infants less than 28 days old. There has been a significant reduction in the infant mortality rate because of this unit, however there is still a shortage of key lifesaving equipment, which CWC is helping to fund.
