I am director of Global Women, a nonprofit in Alabama that is concerned with global issues impacting women. Maternal health is one of those issues that we pay close attention to. We are not experts, so we chose to connect with GHA as experts in the field of improving maternal health in Haiti! We have included funds for GHA in our annual budgets for the past 2 years, and have committed funds again for 2013 to support the monthly traditional birth attendants training in Petit Goave. Our organization is made up of individuals and groups that have also, over the past 4 years, assembled birthing kits and sent to the birth attendants to assist them in their deliveries. I led a team of women from Global Women to Haiti in March, 2012. We were able to attend a monthly training for the TBA's, and deliver more kits. We all loved seeing the program in action and meeting the dedicated TBA's and GHA leaders, and especially love their approach of empowering the local leaders. What joy to see the pride in the TBA's and the affirmation that GHA gives to them, valuing their commitment to be trained. Some walked over 7 hours one way to attend the meeting! The head nurse, Mirellaine, wants to lower the maternal mortality rate in Haiti, and GHA is helping her and TBA's in remote villages, to do just that! We are thrilled to be a partner in the good work of GHA, Mirellaine, and the TBA's!
