BENEFITING: MIDWIVES FOR HAITI INC
About our fundraiser~ Amanda, Sarah & Amina are going to Haiti in August to do some amazing work with/for the organization, Midwives For Haiti. We will be training Haitian women and men to be skilled birth attendants and to properly manage prenatal care. This is deeply needed for the Haitian society....
In Haiti, a woman’s chance of dying in childbirth was 1 in 28 in 2010; this awful maternal mortality rate is starting to change with the work that MFH is doing, but still it's a staggering 1 in 44. And neonatal deaths can be as often as 2 - 6 per week in the small local hospital of Hinche. All women deserve to live to see their children grow. And all babies deserve to have a chance to live. Your donation would greatly help the women & babies we will helping.
