FRIENDS OF EDNAS MATERNITY HOSPITAL's Fundraiser:

"Beyond Flowers for Mom" | Edna Adan University Hospital Mother's Day Campaign

FRIENDS OF EDNAS MATERNITY HOSPITAL's Photo

THE STORY:

In 2011, in an article titled "Beyond Flowers for Mom," Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times profiled the Edna Adan University Hospital and encouraged his readers to skip flowers or chocolates, and instead to honor their mothers on Mothers' Day by "saving the lives of mothers halfway around the world — such as in this impoverished nook of Somaliland in the horn of Africa. Beyond celebrating moms with fleeting flowers, they are helping an extraordinary Somali woman, Edna Adan, run a maternity hospital here to make childbirth safer."

We couldn't have said it any better ourselves!
