Rashida Begum with Her New Baby Girl[/caption]
Rashida Begum, 20, came to Dhaka with her family 11 years ago. She took work as a maid servant in Dhaka through the help of one of her neighbors. Rashida’s marriage was arranged for her 3 years ago.
During a DCI field survey, social workers from our Health for Underprivileged Program identified Rashida as a pregnant mother in need of assistance. She was 5 months pregnant at the time. The social workers took Rashida to our Healthcare Center at Mohammadpur, and the doctor checked up on her regularly.
