Please join me to support my mission as I travel to Haiti to provide medical and spiritual care to pregnant and post-natal women in Cap Haitien. I thank you in advance for your donations and prayers. More ...
As some of you may remember, in 2011 I traveled to Lima, Peru on my first medical missions trip. The seven days I spent there allowed to me to witness firsthand the impact a few dollars and a willing heart can have.

In May, I would like to celebrate becoming a registered nurse by traveling to Haiti to further my outreach to pregnant mothers in need of basic medical and prenatal care. Joining forces with Mama Baby Haiti, I will serve the local community of Mourne Rouge, which is still reeling from the devastation of the earthquake in 2010.

Haiti has the highest maternal death rate in the Western Hemisphere; 1 in every 70 women will die during childbirth. Of all the things pregnant American women worry about, never do we worry about dying and leaving our newborns as orphans. We do not need to worry about prenatal care because even without insurance, we have resources to ensure we deliver healthy babies in a clean environment. These Haitian women have nothing to take care of themselves or their babies. Mama Baby Haiti provides pre and post-natal care, basic medicines, food, a safe haven to deliver , and in many cases a fresh, safe start to an otherwise helpless mother and child.

In Haiti, it takes just $37 to pay for the rent for an entire year for a mother I would like to help. I have over 700 friends on Facebook. If every one of you donated just $5 think of all the mothers and newborns whose lives we could affect? Donations received will be used to purchase supplies needed by the clinic so they can continue the amazing work they provide.
