"It's heartwarming to see babies free of sickness"

Dear Friends,

This is one of our favorite times of the year. With Mother’s Day, International Day to End Obstetric Fistula, International Midwife’s Day and International Nurses Day, May is a month full of opportunities to celebrate and show our support for mothers, their children, and the healthcare workers who serve them.

Starting today, until May 13th, our friends at GlobalGiving will award bonus prizes to the top five projects with the most unique donors. Make a donation of any amount through our nominated GlobalGiving project today, and bring us closer to winning bonus prizes, and supporting more nurses like Ladness.

Frontline healthcare teams in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania face daily battles to provide care that will save lives at birth, and prevent and treat injuries and disabilities with limited resources. But for nurses like Ladness, the rewards far outweigh the difficulties.

“I like being a nurse because it never stops giving. I get the opportunity to learn new things every day…It is very heart-warming to see babies coming here very ill but leaving free of sickness.” 

Ladness works in one of the 23 health facilities supported by our comprehensive maternal & newborn healthcare capacity building program. Thanks to your generosity and the support of our partners, Ladness has received the training and equipment she needs to save the lives of sick newborns, and also identify disabilities at birth for early treatment. She has also been able to empower the next generation of healthcare workers to do the same.

I have been able to pass on the knowledge from CCBRT trainings to untrained nurses and volunteers in the ward. Together, we’ve really improved the management of newborn illnesses and complications.”

That improvement shows. From 2010 to 2016, the quality of maternal, newborn and child healthcare services at Ladness’ hospital climbed from 5% to 85%. That means more lives saved, more women receiving high quality emergency obstetric care, more healthy babies safely delivered, and more children born with impairments referred for the treatment they need.

Thank you for supporting Ladness, her colleagues, and the families they are so proud to serve.

Warm regards,

Abbey Kocan
