BENEFITING: MIDWIVES FOR HAITI INC
Teresa Evans and Robin Gray-Reed are going to Hinche, Haiti, to volunteer with Midwives for Haiti, a non-profit organization that trains skilled birth attendants to provide life-saving prenatal, birth, and postpartum care to the most at-risk women and infants in the Western Hemisphere. We will be providing direct patient care at St. Therese Hospital as well as the mobile prenatal clinic (a bright pink Jeep that travels to remote villages to provide care to women who would otherwise possibly never receive prenatal or postpartum care). In addition, we will be helping support the new class of midwives-in-training that will just be starting up as we arrive. Your financial support will go towards our program fees, travel expenses, and donations of medical supplies to bring with us. We will be taking pictures and blogging about our experiences along the way. We hope you will partner with us as we seek to support the vital work that Midwives for Haiti provides to women and babies.
