Sometimes, I get bogged down in the to-do list type stuff. Even though the cause is so near and dear to my heart, some days I think less about the moms we serve and more about fundraising or the logistics of getting kits and training materials to Laos.
That’s ok. That’s my job. But today it was nice to take a minute and look into the women’s faces.
Natalie, CleanBirth.org volunteer extraodinare, who oversaw the resupply of kits and attended a Village Volunteer training in December, sent this picture of 3 moms who used the kits we supplied.
Looking at the faces of these women, seeing the bundles wrapped safely in their arms, I remember that this is why I do what I do.
This is why so many people have gotten involved, through volunteering and donations.
These women are faced with real danger when they give birth. They have many older children depending on them. We need to give them education and supplies to make each birth as safe as we can.
That’s why we do what we do. That’s why you give what you can give. We thank you. They thank you!
