Honoring Claudia Booker

I am sending out this project report one week before the first anniversary of Claudia Booker's death on February 19, 2020.  Like so many who knew and loved her, I find I miss my friend every day, even a year after her passing from this life. So it is with joy and sadness that I report the great things Mercy In Action College of Midwifery has been able to do for Black and Indigenous student midwives in her name this past year. 

Because of this scholarship fund in Claudia's honor, 20 students received a total of 23 micro-grants to help them financially with their midwifery schooling at  Mercy In Action College of Midwifery. 18 students receiving scholarships identify as African American/Black, and two are from American Indian/Alaska Native tribes. The reason this scholarship is so impactful is that these are the two communities in America that lose more babies and mother's lives at birth than any other race or ethnicity.

On February 19th, we remember our friend Claudia and how hard she fought for safe motherhood and newborn survival for all during her lifetime. This scholarship in her name would make her so proud! 

Maybe today you would consider a one-time donation, or sign up to become a monthly donor to this Claudia Booker Memorial Midwife Scholarship fund, to help these students finish strong and become the midwives their communities are waiting for.

Thank you and many blessings,

The Mercy in Action College of Midwifery staff and faculty
