INTERNATIONAL CENTRE FOR DIARRHOEAL DISEASE RESEARCH BANGLADESH's Fundraiser:

Dhaka Hospital Fundraising Appeal, October 2014

THE STORY:

21 month-old Sultana arrived at the Dhaka Hospital, just seconds away from death. Acute diarrhoea had drained her body of all nourishment and hydration. Her desperate family had rushed her by auto rickshaw to the one place they knew could save her–icddr,b's Dhaka Hospital

As Sultana’s tiny body went into shock, doctors put a saline drip in her arm, halting imminent organ failure and death. Within two minutes, her pulse stabilised, and hospital staff were able to treat the diarrhoeal disease that was intent on taking her life.

Less than 24 hours later, Sultana was sitting up, fully recovered. “I have my daughter back, thanks to God and the Dhaka Hospital,” says Sultana’s mother.

At what is commonly known in Dhaka as the 'Cholera Hospital', we provide treatment free of charge. But someone has to pay the cost. That’s why we need you.

Just $10 will help us save the life of a child like Sultana. Think how many children’s lives you could save, with just a little generosity.

Each year, we treat more than 120,000 patients, over a third of whom come from families earning less than $4 a day. Fifty-five percent of patients are children under-5. Without treatment, almost a third of them will die.

With this Crowdrise appeal, we are aiming to raise $5,000 by the end of October. This will supplement the $35,000 we have already raised through cash donations in Bangladesh since October 1.

Please join us in this important work. Save a life today.
