Good news: Rotary International has approved a matching grant that will provide the birthing center equipment, in parallel with our Rebuilding Alliance fundraising effort here in GlobalGiving.org to provide the training. At long last, we can launch this important project.
We're planning for early October. In addition to the technical training team, Rotarians from the San Francisco Area are encouraging Rebuilding Alliance to host a Holy Land Visit. The Rotary Club of Ramallah in Palestine and the Rotary Club of Nazareth in Israel will both be hosting, as well as the Villagers of Al Aqaba! We welcome you to join us! Details coming soon - please do send me email if you would like to join us!
Now, if you would, please take a moment to make a donation to this project to help meet the goal! We're almost there.
Today, Wednesday June 13th, GlobalGiving will match all donations to this project by 50%! Their Match Day will end at 11:59 pm Eastern time or sooner if their matching funds run out.
Thank you again for making Al Aqaba's dream, the 1st Palestinian Birthing Center in the Jordan Vally, a reality!
