The situation in Ethiopia is complex due to various ongoing conflicts.
Nevertheless, maternity services persist in supporting the community. There have been recent improvements earlier this year, including the inauguration of a waiting room during our visit in March. The demand for services is on the rise, making it more important than ever to keep working and collaborating. We are currently assessing and planning actions for 2024, and we will share details in our next report.
For now, we thank you for your continued support of this project, as it wouldn’t be possible without your help!
Last March a delegation of Mensajeros de la Paz, led by Father Angel, visited Ethiopia to see, first hand, the international cooperation projects with which our organization collaborates there, as well as to hold various meetings with authorities and entities to continue creating alliances.
As part of the trip we were able to visit, together with the Mayor of Gondar, the Mulu Maternity Hospital, our main project for maternal and child health in which we have been working since 2013 together with the NGO AYME and which allows a multitude of women and children in the region to access quality medical care.
We were also able to see, first hand, a project in which we have begun to collaborate in Ethiopia, a camp for displaced people. This trip has made us return with the ambition of continuing to work and continue developing projects around the world that improve the lives of the most vulnerable people.
Dear Friends, the maternity has a new waiting room!
Women come to the Hospital walking from miles away on difficult roads, with a heavy sun over their heads and often carrying their babies with them. They arrive to the maternity hospital exhausted and have to wait for their appointment. Now they can wait sheltered from inclement weather and rest from the long journey in better conditions.
The works have lasted approximately 3 months, for which we have had the support of other entities, donations and professional architectural advice. In a few days we will travel to Gondar to visit the entire project and will assist to the official inauguration ceremony.
Thanks to your support we have managed a wish come true!
