For some mother’s in Haiti, this Mother’s Day will not be a day of celebration. In particularly in Haiti’s Central Plateau, the high rate of maternal mortality remains a challenge. Haiti’s statistics regarding maternal mortality are among the highest in the Caribbean: 1 out of every 37 female deaths is linked to a high risk pregnancy.
Project Medishare is working toward decreasing the maternal mortality rate in Haiti’s Central Plateau with our new Maternal Health Center which broke ground at the end of January. Thanks to the Greig Family, who completely funded the construction, women will have access to a full package of women’s health services including reproductive health education, family planning, along with HIV/AIDS counseling and testing.
Honor your mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, stepmother, aunt, sister, or friend with a gift of $25 to Project Medishare. Your contribution will help with operating costs of the Maternal Health Center and make a difference by helping develop healthy mothers in Haiti.
For a gift of $25 or more, we will send a Mother’s Day card to a special woman in your life, letting her know a donation has been made in her honor. The women of Haiti will appreciate your thoughtful gift which will help them survive to raise healthy children.
This year Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10.To ensure that your note is mailed on time, we must receive your donation by Friday, May 1. Click here to make your donation now. Once you have donated, email Project Medishare’s Media Specialist, Jennifer Browning (email@example.com) with the address(es) of those you are honoring so they may receive their special Mother’s Day card.
