Kathleen and Ted's Help for Haiti
Organized by: Kathleen Lutter
Haiti is the poorest country and the most dangerous place in the Western Hemisphere to give birth. Over 75% of all deliveries are not attended by skilled personnel and 1 in 5 children dies by the age if five. "Midwives for Haiti" teaches local Haitian women the basics of safe delivery and newborn care to alleviate these devastating figures. Being parents has been the greatest gift Ted and I could ask for and luckily, we had the resources to do it safely. In February 2015, we will travel to Hinche, Haiti and work in the hospital and mobile clinics there to help support this cause. Your donation will help us travel there and provide the workers with delivery kits, supplies and the education needed to ensure safe birth in this impoverished area. Thank you so much for helping. Please remember , no amount is too small and every donation is greatly appreciated.
