Join Jhpiego, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate, in fighting COVID-19 across the world in this year’s global Miles for Mothers Remix. This virtual event will help keep health care workers on the frontlines of COVID-19 safe while they prevent and contain outbreaks of COVID-19, and help moms and their families living in countries that were already experiencing crises before the COVID-19 pandemic, such as severe shortages of health care workers and lifesaving medical equipment, high maternal mortality rates, unreliable stocks of essential medicines, poor access to health facilities, lack of electricity and civil unrest.
Our goal is to raise $34,000 to help stop the pandemic in its tracks and save lives among the world’s most at-risk populations. Join us by walking, running, donating or fundraising to keep health care workers, moms and their families safe!
When terrorists shot up a maternity ward in Kabul, Afghanistan, I was outraged at the audacity of the attack and the cowardice. Targeting pregnant women trying to bring a new life into the world? And the midwives and women doctors coaching a new baby to take her first breath? Really? I recalled my own time in the maternity ward, the circle of women surrounding me who helped ease my labor. To think that special time would be shattered by gunfire to make a political point enraged me. I raised money then to support those midwives and I'm at it again for Jhpiego to ensure all health workers we support have the proper equipment they need to survive this battle with COVID and keep their patients safe. They are on the frontlines. Their lives are at risk. They deserve the proper equipment and our support.Join me. Help save lives.
