THE STORY:

I will be traveling to Haiti for 2 weeks this February to volunteer for Midwives for Haiti.  In Haiti, where 75% of births are not attended by a skilled birth attendant and 7% of children (1 out of 14) die before reaching age 5, the need to improve maternal and child health is great.

Midwives for Haiti is an organization that trains local nurses in the skills needed to keep mothers and babies safe and healthy during pregnancy and birth.  During my visit, I will be working directly with Haitian students (with the help of a translator) in both the hospital and rural clinic setting.  My hope is to raise $1500 to deliver personally to this incredible organization.  $1500 will cover the cost of prenatal care (including medications/vitamins, screening, and exam) for 150 women.  To learn more about Midwives for Haiti, visit midwivesforhaiti.org

Love and thanks, Susan Mitchell
