A Christmas Gift of Life
The Covid pandemic has devastated mothers and babies in East Africa. That's why we're asking for your help in our greatest time of need.
At this time of year when we focus on giving, you can give the gift of life to a mother and her child.
Imagine having to walk this sort of terrain while in labour!
This is the road Sylvia was forced to walk because maternal care is out of reach in her community.
Your gift will help women like Sylvia - who lives in a village high in the hills of Eastern Uganda. Her community, especially in the rainy season, is inaccessible to vehicles. The closest health care facility is over two hours away by foot!
She was forced to take the long journey while in labour and gave birth to a baby daughter on the side of the road. Miraculously, they both survived. One of our STM graduates is working to connect midwives to her community so no mother gives birth without help from skilled attendants. Watch their story here.
Sylvia holds her newborn daughter, aptly named Mercy. One of our STM grads is now working to connect women in her community to health care.
Women in Uganda are 37 times more likely to die from pregnancy and childbirth than women in Canada.
Your donations help us raise up more game changers who are working to connect marginalized communities to health care.
