Summary

In Palestine's Jordan Valley, one of the most marginalized areas, women must travel long distances across checkpoints to receive pre-natal and maternity care. Rebuilding Alliance helped equip a OB/GYN Clinic at the new Emergency care center in Ein Al Beida to provide care to mothers and babies in the northern Jordan Valley. Now we ask your help to send a filmmaker first, then recruit delegation of care providers to offer in-depth training to the doctors, nurses, nurse midwives and parents.

Challenge

In the Jordan Valley, Palestinian women are among the poorest of the poor, and must travel through unpredictable checkpoints to receive pre-natal and maternity care. If a mother giving birth faces any complications or if her newborn baby is sick, there is no time for such an arduous trip. As a result, many schedule c-sections. Area C is a high risk area too: nearly all Palestinian families are issued demolition or expulsion orders, with Israeli Army training and demolitions underway throughout.

Solution

By sending a filmmaker on this exploratory trip, you bring attention to the needs of the health centers and can bring training to parents, doctors, midwives, and nurses. Facilitators will come from all places in the world and that will help promote both health and peace.

Long-Term Impact

This Prenatal Clinic in Area C, provides some 10,000 people with family-centered pre-natal care. The centers help an at-risk population thrive. Medical training provided to doctors, nurses, and midwives can bring down the high infant mortality rate in the area and stimulate new grants for medical care. Grassroots and Diplomatic assistance will help secure the fundamental human rights of these indigenous people.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
