IMA has used its expertise to establish midwifery clinics in parts of the world that need it most. These clinics have then become independent and are success stories of grassroots donations being used to their utmost: helping the neediest of people. Locals are trained to deliver babies in a safe environment, under high standards. It's current clinic, Teso Safe Motherhood Project (TSMP), in Uganda, is IMA's latest shining example of donor dollars at work. The clinic staff provides services to the community including transporting laboring mothers to the clinic for safe deliveries, providing labor and delivery services and post-natal care, providing outreach programs to educate about planned parenting, educates about HIV/AIDS, provides mosquito nets as anti-malarial measures, and more. It's incredible what this clinic produces on the dollars it receives!
