Baby Shower Miracle

UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming support of GlobalGiving’s donors, we’ve raised our funding goal to $10,993 to save even more mothers and babies.

I am over joyed to report that GlobalGiving’s participation in our rally to throw a baby shower for our Onura clinic in South Sudan has raised nearly over $9,533 so far in less than a week.

Our Onura Maternal Survival Project has gone from being one of our least supported projects on GlobalGiving to being fully funded (between May 2010 and last Monday July 18, donors had only given $840).

The donated money will buy 6 delivery beds and kits to cover six villages. The delivery facilities will save the lives of hundreds of mothers and babies (right now, one in five mothers in Onura die in childbirth). It also will fund the training of midwives to deal with childbirth complications. Any additional money will be used to buy the maternity pads, sterile gowns, gloves, and birthing mats.

Thank you GlobalGiving! Thank you Global Giving donors! Thanks to the world to stand behind the Onura women!

In the next 3 months new updates will be posted, and we also will report on how your contributions are impacting the lives of women and their new babies at Onura.
