Last year, Niclete was just another woman in Uganda living in the slums, trying to provide for her family of growing children, alone. Last year, she did not have a job, or access to maternal health care. Last year, Niclete gave birth to a still-born baby boy, body too twisted. Last month, none of that came to mind as she held a precious, perfect new bundle - Joshua. Last month, she had a family surrounding her as we all welcomed this new little one into our fold.
She has money to buy him blankets because she has a job working for our jewelry program, Imani. She has sisters to surround her and hold her other babes, while she takes care of this new one. This is the miracle of love and the impact of your giving.
All the dusty trucks rides to hospitals, and doctor appointments, and sonograms are worth it. And if you still don't get why I do what I do--then you'll understand now. If you want to help us reach more women with our maternal health care programs we offer all our ladies, then you can give here.
You can be confident that it makes a difference in a woman's life, and the lives of her children, and each life adds up to make many. We are thankful for you and your generosity, and we have seen with our eyes the impact that you have made.
