I have a chance to change the world but it can't happen without your support! I have been chosen to travel to remote villages in Pakistan to talk about my favorite type of nursing, neonatal care. In Pakistan 57% of newborns die within the first 72 hours of life, the majority of these deaths occurring within the first 24 hours from preventable causes such as neonatal asphyxia (not being able to breathe) and infection. We in American have advanced knowledge concerning umbilical cord care, suctioning, and resuscitation that can improve these statistics greatly! Portneuf Medical Center and the JRM Foundation have partnered together to send doctors, nurses, and a handful of volunteers over to Pakistan to spread knowledge and resources. Our trip will go from July 21st to July 31st and will reach three different areas of Pakistan: Kallash, Chitral, and Mastooj. We will have multiple different workshops to teach the basic care of a newborn following delivery as well as advanced neonatal resuscitation. Portneuf Medical Center has been so kind to sponsor my way as a newborn nurse so your donation will directly affect the villages of Pakistan.
In Pakistan it takes roughly $1,500 to send a local woman to midwifery school to learn the care of mother and baby before, during, and after delivery. Due to the economic conditions in Northern Pakistan there are very few trained midwives which can only attribute to the mortality rates discussed. My initial goal is to raise $1,500 to send one local village woman to midwifery school. Any additional funds will either be used in increments of $1,500 to obtain more trained midwives as well as resuscitation supplies such as bag and masks, suction equipment, and sterile cord supplies. Thank you in advance for your generosity, love, and support. Also don’t forget to print a receipt after donating to retain for your tax records!
