Our first assembly since COVID-19 began

Dear donor,
As you may know, we cancelled all clean birth kit events when COVID-19 hit back in March. 
We have decided, however, to hold our annual gala. This year it will be outside... "a casual outdoor celebration of our mission." The event will focus on a large outdoor Clean Birth Kit assembly event. With your donation, you have helped us purchase birth kit supplies. We are so grateful to you!
We will put in place all appropriate precautions for safe participation, including limiting attendance to 100 people at a time for 2 hour blocks of time for a maximum attendance of 300 people (out of town guests will be welcome to stay the entire time due to the distances they are traveling).
The event will take place on Friday, October 2nd, 2020!  If you are interested in attending or sponsoring, please email us at info@globalhealthcharities.org!
Thank you again, for your generous support, and being a key part of our mission to reduce maternal and infant mortality around the world, which continues, sadly, to be a staggering estimated 13,000 deaths per day!
Stay safe and healthy!

GHC assembles kits with church and social service agency

Guests and volunteers assembling kits!
Guests and volunteers assembling kits!

Dear valued donor,

For one week each winter, guests from the South Oakland Shelter/Lighthouse program live at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Parish in Farmington, MI. The lower level of the church is lovingly transformed into a warm, inviting temporary lodging space for 25-30 men, women and children.

For the fifth year in a row, the guests have also helped GHC assemble Clean Birth Kits on one of their evenings at OLS. Your donation helped make this happen!

In the midst of what may be the most vulnerable and challenging time of their lives, the guests have the generosity and selflessness to stop and give to others in need.

Thank you for your donation, and allowing us to assemble with this very special group of individuals.

***COVID-19 UPDATE: All Clean Birth Kit group assemblies and shipments are on hold until further notice. Donations made toward the Clean Birth Kit program will be set aside for future Clean Birth Kit materials, assemblies and shipments.

Gala Assembly, Nigeria CBK delivery, St. Mary Mercy Hospital Nurse Resident Assembly

Dear valued donor,

GHC started this quarter off with the 2019 "Let Life Bloom" Gala in early November, and we were honored to have Sr. Mary Louise Stubbs of the Daughters of Charity International Project Services as our keynote speaker. We also welcomed special guest Dr. Amina Abubakar Bello, first lady to the Governor of Niger-State, Nigeria. 

At that event our guests assembled 2,000 Clean Birth Kits! Those 2000 Clean Birth Kits (2,000) are being shipped to the Daughters of Charity maternity clinics in Nigeria THIS WEEK! You were part of that initiative, and we thank you!

Also, thank you to the graduating Nurse Residents at St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Livonia, Michigan!

On December 12th,  these talented nurses assembled Clean Birth Kits as part of their graduation celebration! St. Mary's was one of our first assembly partners and we are grateful and honored that they have made us part of their graduation activities.

Know that your donations help keep these assemblies running, with help from the organizations we are working with. Each kit is valued at $10, and includes shipping and delivery to the remote regions we serve. It takes a village, and thank you for being a part of ours.

Our greatest thanks to you, GHC's supporters and valued donors. Please enjoy the pictures from these events!
