We are so excited to be launching our 3rd Annual Mother’s Day Campaign today!
In our first year, we campaigned to add more mothers to the program. In the second year, our efforts were directed toward expanding operations. Now for our third year, we will be raising funds to expand the maternal health services we provide to further enhance the lives of each mother and child.
Adding these specific services to the maternal health program will aid in the continuation of decreasing maternal and infant mortality.
Expanding the Safe Sleep initiative will provide each mother with a durable bassinet, firm-fitting mattress, and a swaddle blanket. This will aid in the reduction of infant mortality rates by teaching safe sleep practices to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Adding a new doctor to the team who specializes in C-sections will further reduce maternal mortality rates related to emergency birthing situations. Purchasing a new ultrasound machine decreases maternal and infant mortality rates by providing greater insights into the infant’s development in utero and overall pregnancy health.
LiveBeyond wants to continue enhancing services for the community of Thomazeau. Mothers and children deserve the best possible care. It is not okay that the country’s poor economics and governance prohibit this from happening.
As always, any funds donated, no matter the amount, are helpful in reaching our goal to expand our maternal health services for the mothers and children of Thomazeau.
We thank you for your generosity, support, prayers, and encouragement! Thank you for choosing to live beyond yourself.
