We just received an exciting update from our partners at Midwives for Peace! They are busy planning for their next meeting later this month, where they will exchange tips, stories, midwifery courses and more!
Midwives for Peace trains midwives to deliver babies safely, despite the conflict that surrounds them. Midwives from both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian border come together regularly to attend workshops to share midwifery techniques. Their efforts so far have improved the lives of hundreds of women and babies on both sides of the conflict.
At this month’s meeting, they will attend a special workshop with an emphasis on nursing for newborn infants. They are looking forward to learning from the course’s instructor, a bilingual Arabic-Hebrew neonatal nurse with years of experience.
These regular meetings offer a rare respite from struggle and conflict, and they couldn’t happen without your support. Please stay tuned for a full report back soon!
