The LiveBeyond maternal health program has been successfully serving the mothers of Thomazeau, Haiti, for 9 years now.
Through this program, we serve expecting mothers and infants throughout pregnancy until one year postpartum. Pregnant mothers come to the clinic weekly for check-ups, medical attention, maternal health education, and food supplies. Once babies are born, both the mother and infant continue receiving weekly check-ups to monitor health and growth. This maternal health initiative has collectively served over 3,000 individual mothers, pregnancies, and babies.
“Skilled care before, during, and after childbirth can save the lives of women and newborns.”
We have helped lower the rate of maternal mortality by 73% in our region of Thomazeau, Haiti. Last year alone, we served 360 mothers, and 410 babies were born into the maternal health program (including twins). We want to continue to provide quality and vital care to these mothers and babies.
In order to keep lowering the rate of maternal mortality, we have to expand our capacity to serve each mother. We are adding a delivery room to the LiveBeyond hospital. We need your help to reach our goal by Mother’s Day to sponsor all 350 anticipated deliveries this year. Your sponsorship of $100 will help a mother have a safe and sanitary environment to deliver her baby in the delivery room at the LiveBeyond hospital.
Please donate today to help LiveBeyond continue our work to lower the maternal mortality rate and expand our capacity to provide critical quality care to the mothers of Thomazeau.
“You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” – 2 Corinthians 9:11-12
