Kanata graduated top of her class and is now working as a midwife supervisor at HOPE Foundation's health facility inside a Rohingya camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

Everyday, she trains and empowers more maternal health heroes, and is a catalyst for quality maternal health care services where it is needed most.

"In every corner of society, every corner of the village, I want to set up midwifery services; so that within a second, within a minute, we will be there. This is my vision", says an inspirational Kanata. 

UNFPA is proud to support HOPE Foundation in empowering midwives such as Kanata to ensure that every woman and girl has access to quality maternal health services across Bangladesh.
