My wife works for this nonprofit, and I have come to know their great work through her. I was always someone who said, "shouldn't we fix our own problems in the U.S. first?" And I have learned during the past several years to see the world as more interconnected. I realize there is a huge difference between the quality of care my wife received when pregnant and during delivery than the women of Uganda or Afghanistan receive. This disparity of care is inherently unjust. I also know that the dollars we contribute to IMA go very far. I think the overall cost per patient visit for the year in 2009 was about $8 per person - $8 dollars per patient visit includes all lab work, care from a doctor or midwife and medications. This figure includes emergency feeding for children, vaccinations, mosquito net and food distribution, HIV/AIDS testing and treatment! I know the money we donate to IMA really makes a difference on the ground. Because my wife works for the organization, I know how little overhead this nonprofit has - I know how much dedication the employees and volunteers have, and I know that my dollars really save lives.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing from my wife the stories on the ground about the patients who come to the clinic and the treatment they receive. It's truly awe inspiring.

International Midwife Assistance (IMA) is doing what most of us would think impossible. With a very small paid staff and a volunteer board, they are providing essential health care services to some of the world's most desperate and impoverished people. In Uganda alone, IMA saw an astonishing 8,938 patients in 2008 and more than doubled that in 2009 by seeing 23,901 patients. The stories in their newsletter break my heart open as I am made aware of both the extent of the need and the extraordinary work being done to respond with both training of local women and the provision of direct care services in the clinics and outreach programs that IMA has created. I wish I could give more to support the inspired and inspiring women that are IMA in the profoundly important work they are doing with the poorest of the poor. Money could not be better spent.

I haven't been to Africa to see the work first hand. But when I listen to Jennifer Braun talk about the work, the women, the children, and when I read the newsletter, I am in awe of what has been created through the IMA vision and commitment. Inspiring!

I have volunteered for IMA for four months in Boulder, CO. The organization, run by committed and dedicated staff and board members, has clearly improved the lives of vulnerable and marginalized women and children throughout the globe, while mobilizing women through midwifery training, family planning access, and compassion. IMA is currently working with a health clinic in Soroti, Uganda, a region that is heavily populated with IDPs that have little or no health access otherwise. The stories, photos and videos from the clinic leave little doubt IMA is doing a miraculous job achieving their mission in the area.

The Great!

Their clear results of increasing participation by the community, demonstrated by their tally of patient visits which considerably increases each month.
