Midwife, Mother and Baby in the community
Spring is here and all things are becoming new. And Mercy In Action is in the building process again! We are so excited to be building a new birth center and clinic in an area outside of Manila, for a midwife that was relocated to the area after a fire destroyed her entire urban community. Now many of the families have relocated to this new area, and will have their own midwife back again. It is hard to convey how happy it makes the pregnant women to know that the familiar midwife they know and love from their former community is moving into the resettlement area with them in time to assist at their upcoming birth!
Right now our midwife is working in the middle of the construction mess to offer prenatal exams in temporary space, but soon the lovely new birth center will be ready for her to move into. Your contributions have helped greatly with our building project; we expect to be moved in before any of the current patients reach their due date.
Thank you to each and every person who donates to Mercy In Action through Global Giving. You make it possible for families living in very difficult and unsettling circumstances to have quality maternity care provided to them free of cost, in clean, beautiful facilities, with kind and well trained midwives.
If anyone would like to donate new or very gently used baby clothes, blankets or knit caps for us to give free to each new baby, you may mail them to this address:
