Sierra Leone update
By Leah Little - Project Leader
Our partners working in Sierra Leone have recently sent another team for their midwifery "Train the Trainers" classes.
Their focus is on women who lack access to quality maternity care and have the fewest choices. Some of the ways they fulfill their mission are:
Prepare women to be problem-solvers for their communities, especially for the pregnant women.
Train women in the skills and knowledge they need to make changes in the community, educate others, and support local pregnant women, especially with prenatal and postnatal care.
Advocate for effective maternity care to all women.
COHI is honored to commit funding for this program through the rest of the year and hopefully beyond!

The Situation in Syria
By Leah Little - COO
The conflict in Syria has created the largest global displacement crisis in recent history. Almost 5 million people have fled to other countries, 500,000 people have died, and many more have been injured. The situation near Ghouta is still dire.
Most recently we have used funds to distribute cooked meals and bread, mainly to the most vulnerable women and children in Ghouta. We are also sending money to help get women and children to a nearby hospital when necessary, since so many health care facilities have been damaged during airstrikes and shelling. COHI will continue to support the families of this region for as long as possible.
Thank YOU for your continued support of moms and babies in Syria.
