Sandra Piper, a BC nurse who volunteered at IUBAT in fall of 2012, taught maternal-child nursing at our teaching hospital partner site, the Centre for Woman and Child Health (CWCH). Like many of our clinical teaching partners, this is a private not-for-profit hospital, working hard to improve care standards. It is situated in the garment manufacturing district north of Dhaka, and provided emergency care to many victims of the infamous Rana Plaza collapse earlier this year. During normal times, CWCH serves thousands of families, with a focus on peri-natal care. Sandra recognized the terrific work and limited resources of CWCH, so when she returned to BC she organized a fundraising campaign.
Thank you Sandra, for your commitment and efforts to help this deserving institute!
