Gathering to say "Thanks, Global Giving!"
This attached video is to say a big Thank You to all who donated to Mercy In Action through GlobalGiving.
Many women in the Philippines where we live are unable to afford a skilled birth attendant. So just like Mary in the famous Christmas story, when they start labor they have no where to go and no one to help, because there is still "no room at the inn" for pregnant women who cannot afford to pay.
But because of your geneours giving to Mercy In Action through GlobalGiving, our kind and caring midwives have been able to help hundreds of women give birth safely this year, and help thousands more to get good quality prenatal and postnatal care, and regular check ups for their newborn babies, all totally free of cost to the patients.
Maria recently said "You are my angels", when referring to how Mercy In Action staff helped her when she experienced pregnancy complications last month. She is one of many women who expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the services of Mercy In Action's birthing home.
So to all our GlobalGiving donors, deepest gratitude from all of us here in the Philippines as we approach the Christmas season. Please remember us in your prayers!
And please enjoy the Thank you Video attached to this report!
In the words of another famous Christmas story, "God Bless us, everyone!"
