For Families in Extreme Poverty, We Offered Hope

“I go to the health center for my antenatal visits. And after my child is born, I will get contraceptive pills. If our family got bigger, it would be very hard to bear the costs. We wouldn’t be able to educate them, take care of them. I want my daughters to be educated and get a good job. That is my dream.”

—Fatima Akhter, mother of two and client of a Surjer Hashi clinic, supported by Pathfinder
