Our progress since January 2017

Greetings!

Thanks to YOU, we collectively raised $400 on Global Giving to put towards our Clean Birth Kit program since mid-January. This impacted 80 lives--both mother and baby.

Since January, we have held assemblies at:

Greater Atlanta Christian School  1/11/17 (GA)

Royal Oak High School Interact Club  1/25/17 (MI)

Our Lady of Sorrows SOS Week  2/7/17 (MI)

Mercy High School Good Deed's Day  4/2/17 (MI

We have distributed the following kits:

Syrian American Medical Society: 700 distributed to Syrian refugees in Lebanon

Raise: 50 distributed in Nigeria

Hope Endeavors: 200 distributed in Malawi

Mbale Regional Hospital: 200 distributed in Uganda

We are looking forward to large Clean Birth Kit assemblies with Presence Health System, Chrysler, Hospital Sisters Mission Outreach, Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, and more.

Thank you for your support...GHC would not be able to accomplish our goals without people like you.

This Mother's Day, we respectfully ask you to consider a donation to GHC in honor of your mother, child, grandchild, niece, nephew, grandmother, Godmother, wife, sister,or another special mother in your life.  Each $10 donation in their honor will help a mother and infant in a developing country experience a clean birth and prevent infection.

Thank you from everyone here at Global Health Charities!

Nursing Library in Myanmar

Global Health Charities would like to thank you for your donation to pay for needed books for the American Nursing Institutes (ANI)'s library. Specific needed titles were selected by our Dean of Students in Mandalay. These books will be put to use by nursing students at ANI-Mandalay for years to come. As we noted in our program description, these books are very hard to come by in Mandalay, so your gift will make a big impact on the education of ANI students.

We were fortunate as an outside donor made a final donation to cover the remaining balance after our Global Giving campaign, so the entire library program is now funded. Thank you for your support in making this happen!

Again, Patricia Williams, founder of the American Nursing Institute, thanks you for supporting the education of nurses in Myanmar.

Warmest regards,

Susan McAdams

GHC Executive Director

Dear GHC donor,

The first donation of this campaign came in on September 20, 2016. It is now just four months later, and what a difference YOUR DONATIONS in that timeframe have made!

You have been part of a group that has donated $2,750 towards the provision of Clean Birth Kits.

Here is how we used that funding (along with support from other partners/donors): From that first donation to today, we have assembled over 2,000 Clean Birth Kits with valued corporate, healthcare and academic partners, which will touch 4,000 lives. With HKS Architects, we have distributed 1,000 kits to Kachumbala Clinic in Uganda. We have distributed 550 kits to eleven maternity clinics in Nigeria through the Daughters of Charity. We have provided 700 kits to the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) to be used by mothers in Syria and surrounding areas of need.

Earl Bridges, GHC Board Member, helped deliver 1,000 Clean Birth Kits to Kachumbala Clinic in Uganda with members from HKS Architects, who sponsored an assembly at their headquarters in Dallas. He said when meeting with mothers and traditional birth attendants, he was told that these kits were precious, that once pregnant women received them, they were carried everywhere they went, understanding that they were not just plastic bags with supplies, but lifesaving kits that could serve as the key between life and death in certain situations.

Please help us as we launch into 2017. Our goal in 2017 is to assemble between 50,000 to 100,000 Clean Birth Kits. That is an ambitious goal, and we need your support.

Please consider:

-A monetary donation to GHC via globalgiving.org

-A donation of supplies or materials::

  • 2 oz. bars of wrapped soap

  • non-latex disposable gloves

  • 4" x 4" or 5" x 5" pieces of gauze

  • Strong string (kitchen twine perfect)

  • plastic sheet (3’ x 50" rolls)

  • New infant hats

  • New 30” x 30” receiving blanket

Here's to a wonderful, joyous and impactful 2017!
