Midwives For Haiti offers a rigorous 18 month training program for Haitian nurses to become Skilled Birth Attendants. We also staff 8 community clinics, one rural birth center, support the maternity wards at our local hospital in Haiti, train and quip traditional birth attendants, and provide postnatal home visits.
COVID-19 has negatively impacted every aspect of our programming. We are swiftly running out of personal protection equipment for our health care employees, and prices have risen for vital medications and equipment.
Pregnancies can be a sign of life and hope but every single expecting family in Haiti is being affected by the pandemic. Please give generously so that we can continue to save lives in the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
