Hôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti (HAS) improves health services for mothers and children in rural Haiti. Maternal and Child Health is a hospital priority, touching the lives of many served by HAS. Programs in the hospital include high risk obstetrics, pediatrics and critical nutrition cases. Community based care is available in four community health centers in which HAS provides a variety of services to mothers and children, including pre-natal care and family planning, vaccinations and screenings for infections.
Thanks to the $7,000 that you helped raise through GlobalGiving, we have been able to completely pay for thehospital stay of 15 women admitted to the OB/GYN ward with complications after childbirth, and conduct 16 C-sections (3 weeks’ worth) to allow mothers and babies to survive pregnancy complications such as placenta previa and eclampsia.
Again, I want to thank you for your wonderful support and encourage you to spread the word of our important work!
