Please Help Me Raise $3,500 to improve life for women and newborns in war-ravaged South Sudan
Now in my 11th year at Jhpiego I have learned to count my blessings every day.... I mean every single day.
Even when I am tired and frustrated...my car won't start...my kids are driving me nuts...the job is too much...my flight is cancelled....I know it is really nothing. I have all I will ever need and so much more.
I have seen firsthand people who struggle to find even $1.00 a day to live on. Women and girls who walk for hours (no exaggeration!) at great risk, to find water to drink or wood for fire. Places where there is no health care within a day’s walk. These are not lazy people! They are only people born into bad circumstance. But for the luck of the draw....it could be you or me.
Jhpiego has saved the lives of millions of women and newborns! I mean millions...We have made health systems better and trained tens of thousands of health care providers to give care in places where there isn't any.
Last year through your donations, we renovated a maternity ward in Madagascar with funds raised from Miles for Mother’s. The video of the improvements is on the page. It was like a miracle provided by you - people who cared.
This year we are hoping to raise $35,000 to bring much needed medical supplies (thermometers, blood pressure cuffs, HIV testing kids, medicine, etc.) and bicycles to 2 camps for health workers in war ravaged South Sudan. This is the world's largest displaced person crisis (4.3 million people!) with the fifth highest maternal mortality rate in the world and an ongoing HIV epidemic. There is no running water or electricity in these camps. People are living in desperate circumstances. Jhpiego is working there and we really need more supplies.
YOU can make a difference! Now is your chance to Join the Jhpiego Team and help people who are desperately in need.
100% of your donation – 100% goes directly to the project. There is no overhead or any other expense removed.
A little means so much! Please consider making a difference.
Thank you so much for your support!
