Buenos días, espero que estés bien.

Today I want to give you excellent news: the first baby of this project was born recently and she is a beautiful girl. We saw her mom come month after month for her pregnancy follow-up appointments, and now she has finally brought the baby with her to her first pediatrics appointment. We are very grateful and very aware of what this means in the life of each person who is served at APLAFA, thanks to donors like you.

Every OB/GYN appointment, every lab exam – covered by your donations – ensures that mother and baby are healthy, that there is a promising future for them. And it provides the necessary information for the medical staff to make the right decisions at the time of delivery and for both to receive timely treatment if necessary. Thus reducing the chances of maternal and child mortality.

Something very important that we have integrated into this project is that, once a woman has given birth, she can access a long-lasting contraceptive method that will provide her with up to three years of protection. Reducing the chances of unplanned pregnancies and giving her the opportunity to follow her personal, academic and professional projects.

Add other donors, invite her friends and family. This is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the reduction of maternal and infant mortality, unplanned pregnancies and increase early diagnosis of diseases.

Have a nice day!

Dear donors,

During the pandemic, thousands of women did not have access to gynecological-obstetric health services. APLAFA has focused its efforts on providing maternal and child health care to socially vulnerable women who will now not only have medical care during their pregnancy, but at the end of the process they will be able to access modern long-acting contraception and their babies will receive pediatric care for the first three months of life.

Your donations are covering costs such as:

- Gynecological and obstetric care

- Laboratory exams

- Obstetric ultrasounds

- Nutrition care, if necessary

- Pediatric care up to the baby's first three months

- A modern long-acting contraceptive, at the end of pregnancy


Thus reducing the chances of complications during pregnancy and childbirth, providing opportunities for timely diagnosis and treatment, and facilitating access to family planning methods.

The benefited women come from the provinces of Colón, Chiriquí and Veraguas. Among them, there are women of the Ngäbe Buglé ethnic group. Until February 11 of this year, $1,517.00 had been used, broken down as follows:

Service                                        Cost

3 Gynecological services                    $      44.00

1 HIV / AIDS Test                                $      20.00

10 Laboratorys                                    $    112.00

1 Nutricionism                                     $      25.00

23 Obstetric Services                          $ 1,195.00
