Thanks for Supporting Safe Births in the West Bank

By MADRE | MADRE

Thank you so much for your support of Midwives for Peace. This network of Palestinian and Israeli midwives is bonded together by their dedication to safe births and to peace.

Your support has enabled us to:

  • Provide safe delivery kits that reduce maternal and infant mortality. These packages contain vital supplies like sterile gauze, gloves, blankets and prenatal supplements. They help ensure that midwives are equipped to care for mothers and their newborns.
  • Create joint professional trainings and workshops for Palestinian and Israeli midwives. These meetings not only allow the midwives to share expertise and learn concrete skills. They build bonds of friendship that endure despite the conflict around them.

And the impact of your support has made a world of difference for mothers in the West Bank. Thanks to you:

  • Mothers in the West Bank have been guided through pregnancy and experienced childbirth as a joyful, happy and healthy occasion.
  • Mothers and newborns have received personalized healthcare and counseling. Mothers have also learned about breastfeeding, hygiene, infant care, and family planning.
  • Despite the ongoing conflict, Palestinian and Israeli midwives cooperate together, modeling peaceful coexistence. Plus, women have increased access to well-trained midwives in their communities. 

We couldn't have done this work without you. Thanks so much for your support!
