We trust and pray that this letter finds you and your family in good health! This has turned out to be one of the most challenging years for many around the globe! Like most businesses, organizations around the world our small NGO did not go unaffected by the crises posed to us by COVID19. Despite reduced funding in some of our projects and cuts in staff, our work did not stop! Thanks to your continued generous support and grants generously given by GlobalGiving to our organization we were able to respond to the COVID19 crisis.
At the start of the appearance of the first COVID-19 cases in Albania, followed shortly by the comprehensive lockdown imposed on the country by the government, the Foundation reshaped some of its services to meet an emerging need. In response to countless messages received through our social media from women and beneficiaries, we started an online series of Telehealth consultation titled “Ask the Doctor” and hosted in YouTube. The series Ask the Doctor is a combination between our existing Perinatal Online Classes as well as building on a telehealth platform.
Additionally, the foundation has worked within the hospital setting and recently through a newly started social enterprise, MamiCare Center, to help increase access of women to safe prenatal care.
- Thus far thanks to your sacrificial giving and grants by GlobalGiving we have been able to produce an additional 35 new videos responding to the many questions of expectant and new mothers!
- Just during this time, we have served some 7000 women in Albanian speaking regions across media channels by providing access to medical care via telehealth to pregnant and new mothers who are in lockdown due to COVID-19.
- We have helped reduce hospital overcrowding and reduced the rate of infection of pregnant women by being a resource for them during this time.
We are looking forward to keeping this initiative and building upon it to continue helping women access free and quality healthcare during uncertain times.
Your support during uncertain times like this means a lot! Thank you for choosing to support our work and mission! https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/empowering-women-in-albania-to-save-their-babies/
