Downton Abbey Winner Announced, + Birthing Kits!

Please help us congratulate William from New York, who will be bringing his equally excited girlfriend, Sarah, to the set of Downton Abbey and dinner at the Criterion restaurant with actress Laura Carmichael.

William took part in our sweepstakes by donating to support the campaign, Haiti: Make Births Safe.

When we shared the news with William, he explained, "The opportunity to meet Laura Carmichael and be briefly immersed in the Downton Abbey universe is the chance of a lifetime. When I saw the Laura Carmichael experience benefiting Haiti: Make Births Safe, I was inspired to give. All women should have the right to have a safe birth and Haiti has had so many difficulties and challenges."

Stay tuned for more opportunities to support the Haiti:Make Births Safe campaign and future chances to win!

In the meantime, we are asking all supporters to help assemble and send us birthing kits so that we can send them to Haiti to be given out at our mobile outreach clinics for pregnant women.

Konbit Sante is sending a 40 foot shipping container this summer, from Maine to Haiti. We already have over 1,000 birthing kits but we need more!  Attached is a simple guide to making safe birthing kits.  We have had great success with schools, groups, churches and mother's groups joining together to assemble and send us birthing kits.

 You can reach us at 207 347 6733/info@konbitsante.org at any time with any questions or concerns.

Campaign launch!

Dear friends,

We have been busy at work launching our campaign around making births safe in northern Haiti.  We have a brand new website explaining all aspects of the campaign and how you can get involved!  Visit Haiti: Make Births Safe

You can also reach us directly now at info@healthybirthing.org.

We have an exciting opportunity starting February 18th where people who support the campaign can enter a sweepstakes to win a trip for 2 to the UK to visit the set and cast of Downton Abbey. See the attached flyer and visit the website for more details.

We encourage you to explore our approach to our work to make births safe in Haiti.  

 

Thank you for your support and please contact us with any questions or concerns. 

Haiti: Make Births Safe is a new campaign consisting of international and Haitian nonprofits working to ensure the health of Haiti's mothers and children in northern Haiti.  By investing in local medical facilities, training community healthcare providers and empowering women with knowledge and support, H:MBS takes a systemic approach to providing affective and accessible maternal and newborn care. Haiti: Make Births Safe is a partnership between Konbit Sante, a 501c3 nonprofit registered in the United States and Haiti, and Haiti Hospital Appeal, a registered non-governmental charity in the United Kingdom.
