Training Mothers to be Traditional Birth Attendant

We are grateful for the opportunity to write to you to share progress we are making in the displacement camp where 98,000 have come to escape the massive flooding in South Sudan. We have a mobile tent set up. A storm came through a week ago and destoryed the tent. We are now tryting to build a permanent building.

A few months ago our midwife trained ten other mothers in the camp to be traditional birth attendants. These mothers don't get paid. They want to help all the young mothers who live in the camp. Because there are just two mobile clinics in the camp, it is too far for some mothers to come to our clinic when it is time to give birth. A traditional birth attendant can help these mothers. With your donation we were able to purchase 'Mama Kits' that have simple items these birth attendants can use to deliver a baby in a sanitary environment. One item is a clean blanket for the newborn. Many times new mothers do not have a clean blanket for the newborn baby and the baby can get an infection.

So we are grateful for your partnership in helping us bring HOPE to the flood victims in the camp. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Jacob Atem
