BENEFITING: Divine Mercy Care
What if one day you found out that you we’re pregnant but you didn’t have the money to support your child and yourself? What would you do then? Our goal is to raise $2,500 for the mothers and children who are in the charity and all that money goes to the mothers who can’t buy medicine and pay for treatments that the mothers cannot afford.
Divine Mercy Care’s mission is “to Transform Hearts Through Healthcare.” They pair up with programs that help uncertain and poor mothers who are about to give births and need that healthcare for them and their babies. Every program that they pair up has doctors and registered nurses and they also have professional, compassionate, medical expertise that cares for one whole person.
In 2013, of the 648 babies delivered by Tepeyac doctors, 118 babies were delivered to mothers who received Medicaid. Then 49 babies were delivered by our hospitalist agreement and 39 babies were delivered to mothers who were able to self-pay their medical bills. At the end 31 babies were delivered to the mothers who were able to qualify a full financial aid. Donations can go to many of the things that they do, for example baskets are made from new baby items, and they usually have $135 of baby items, that later they are give to the mothers and babies.
