I am a midwife who lives and works in central Texas. I have a very blessed life. For some time, I have felt compelled to find a meaningful way to have an impact on improving the health of vulnerable populations. I found IMA doing a websearch and met with the director, Jennifer Braun, about the ongoing work at Teso Safe Motherhood Project in Uganda. I was impressed with the mission and scope of the project and volunteered there for the first time last summer. I have just returned from another volunteer venture this summer. IMA has very little overhead, unlike some other NGOs. Every dollar received has a direct impact in supporting the project and this underserved population in rural eastern Uganda. The clinic staff there is dedicated and work long, hard hours in less than ideal circumstances without complaint; yet, they are happy to do so. The patient population has endured incredible hardships and are grateful beyond description for the services they receive. IMA rocks!
