BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF EDNAS MATERNITY HOSPITAL
I set up this fundraiser to show my gratitude for the care I received in all my pregnancies. Mothers in parts of Africa have a 1 in 12 chance of dying in childbirth simply because there are no resources or trained professionals to care for them. Many die from easily preventable or treatable illnesses. So if you are thankful for the care you or a loved one received in this country show your gratitude by giving to this charity. If I can get 20 people to give a meager $10 we can help this hospital train one midwife for one month. Feel free to read up on the rest of Edna Adan's mission and the hospital she gave her life savings and all her possessions to build and operate. Also check out the documentary "Half the Sky" available on Netflix instant watch to learn why this issue has become so close to my heart. We take so much for granted here in the States, we forget the misery of so many others in the world. So if you can, help me help them out.
