BENEFITING: MOTHER HEALTH INTERNATIONAL INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2011
In November, I will be traveling to Jacmel, Haiti, to spend six weeks at the Sant Akouchman "Solèy Lavi", (Life's Sun Birth Center), run by Mother Health International. This non-profit organization works to provide gentle and competent perinatal care to the people of Haiti, while also training local Haitian women to be midwives.
Haiti currently has the worst mother and infant mortality rates in the Western Hemisphere, and especially after the devastating earthquake in January, 2010, is in dire need of continued support. My support at this time is to go to Haiti and offer my presence and hands; will you help make this possible with a monetary contribution?
To make my trip the most beneficial, please be generous in giving to this cause. Your contribution will help to cover my travel expenses, cost of supplies and extra baggage fees to bring the supplies, my program tuition, and of course, to support the birth center directly.
Sincere thanks to all for your generosity and support.
