3,347 Women: Can you Help?
All women and children deserve healthcare
This year we are pleased to announce our adoption of eight new villages in Darfur: Bargo, Derma, Abu Sinait A nnd Abu Sinait B, Um Isheira, Um Ajaja, Um Shijir, and Turra. Currently, in all eight villages combined, there are 3,347 women living without access to basic everyday healthcare, let alone healthcare for them whilst pregnant, and for their children once born. Virtually none of the mothers can read or write.
We are going to train two women as midwives from each of these eight new villages. That is 16 midwives. Please can you help?
Take a moment to consider what your life - your mother, your wife, your sister's lives - would have been like whilst they were pregnant for nine months with no help at all. Imagine not being able to go for a check-up, to make sure your child was healthy, and so were you. And imagine if when the child was born, there was no one there to help - no equipment and no one who knew anything about delivering a baby safely.
Mothers in Darfur are giving birth in circumstances even more unimaginable every day, to children who honestly may not survive. But it doesn't have to be this way. $3,050 trains one woman as a midwife in Darfur, provides her with a medical kit, and a wealth of knowledge to help her sisters, neighbours, and friends deliver their babies safely. Every small donation builds up to another midwife that can be trained, and hundreds of lives saved. Please consider making a monthly donation of even $10/£10 towards this project. If we all do this, we will raise enough for a midwife in no time.
Thank you all for your consistent support. Please share this project with those you know who might want to help save lives with trained midwives. Every penny counts, and every new supporter is an absolute blessing for families in Darfur.
Your support will save lives!
