Summary

This fund will bring together the alumni of Mercy In Action College of Midwifery in a powerful way to join in monthly support of our outreach arm in the Philippines, midwife-led freestanding birth centers providing maternity care in low-resource, high-mortality areas at no cost to the families. Graduates of our midwife training programs are uniquely qualified to understand and support solutions to the problems facing pregnant women, newborns, and postpartum mothers in poor parts of our world.

Challenge

The problem that we study in Mercy In Action College of Midwifery is this: mothers and newborns are dying at alarming rates, and these are largely unnecessary deaths due to neglect, abuse, and lack of resources. Quality midwifery care, provided without discrimination and at no cost to the parents, achieves greater survival rates and high levels of patient and provider satisfaction. The problems are preventable with well-funded, midwife-led birth centers that provide safe, respectful care to all.

Solution

Mercy In Action College of Midwifery is planning our first ever monthly sustainer campaign, providing our alumni community the opportunity to invest in Mercy In Action's free birth centers among the poor in the Philippines, which is an outreach we all care about. With a goal of securing $1,200 USD per month, it will be an invaluable and critical contribution to Mercy In Action's ability to care for vulnerable pregnant populations and ensure sustainability into the future.

Long-Term Impact

Achieving our goal of $1200 USD per month will allow Mercy In Action to invest even more into our Philippine birth centers. It will allow our national owners and staff to be resourced sustainably in their work combatting maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity in the poorest regions of the Philippines. We will share our results and outcomes, along with a few birth stories, with our alumni donors on a regular basis, increasing their sense of belonging to the global Mercy In Action story!
