I started participating in Jhpiego's Miles for Mothers campaign in 2016 when I was pregnant with that litte guy in the photo with me and every year I'm so thankful that I had access to the care and treatment I needed. I'm continuing to support this great cause by walking the 5K at the Baltimore Running Festival again this year.
Last year we were able to renovate a maternty health clinic in Madagascar with funds raised from Miles for Mothers. This year's campaign will support two displacement camps in South Sudan that are experiencing overwhelming supply shortages and related challenges due to the ongoing civil war in the country. Currently, there are tens of thousands of displaced individuals still living in makeshift camps without access to essential lifesaving care.
Remember—a little goes a long way, and every dollar counts. 100% of your donation for Miles for Mothers will go directly to buy essential medical supplies, clinical equipment, and supplies for community health workers, as well as clinic space improvements.
Thank you for your support!
