THE STORY:

Dearest Friends & Family, In the past 5 and a half years we have found our passion in nursing. Together, we have many years of experience in postpartum and labor and delivery nursing. We adore our jobs and are very passionate about the pregnant and postpartum patient population. It is our dream to extend our care to people who are in great need. We are going to take a weeklong mission trip to Haiti to volunteer our time and skills to a midwifery-training project with Midwives for Haiti. The lack of skilled obstetrical workers makes Haiti the most dangerous place to give birth and contributes to the highest rates of infant and under-five mortality in the Western Hemisphere. According to World Health Organization statistics, 350 women die in every 100,000 births. That rate in the US is 12.6 maternal deaths per 100,000 births. In the rural areas of Haiti, only 25% of births are overseen by an individual with the training and supplies necessary for safe childbirth. Midwives for Haiti has been working to train nurses to be skilled birth attendants since 2004. With your support, we will be working throughout the country, mostly in rural communities where the need for our skills is greatest. This organization is well known and respected in Hinche, has the support of the local population, works in partnership with the Haitian Ministry of Health, and is affiliated with Every Mother Counts. We have attached the link to the organization’s website which provides a wealth of information about this inspiring and ambitious project. http://www.midwivesforhaiti.org In order for us to make this dream a reality we must reach our goal of $3,500 which covers the cost of the trip and the flight for both of us. Whatever you can donate to help us reach this goal is greatly appreciated. If you would rather send us a check please contact us. We hope to touch others lives, and we know that this will be a life changing experience for us as well. Thank you so much for your support. Peace & Love, Allie and Kelly
