Change Nepal's staggering Maternal Mortality Rates

Project moved to Dhading District

After ten years of working in the Rasuwa District, we've relocated this project to the Dhading District. Several years ago, the birthing center in the Rasuwa District had no staff and no equipment. We provided both and have operated the government owned birthing center with our staff and equipment the past three years. Now, the government is finally providing staffing to this birthing center. We can't of course predict for how long, but at the moment the staff is there. We've transferred our midwife to the Dhading District where there is a new birthing center, sans staff, and a small healthpost a few hours walk away that needs midwife support as well. We are scouting a location in one nearby area that is too far from either the aforementioned health post or the birthing center with plans to establish a combination first aid station and birthing center. At the time of this report we are in the US and headed for Nepal in two weeks to scout the location. As soon as we have it, I'll post up some photos and more details. 

Thank you
