Let me begin by saying this organization was started from the heart by a woman with a tremendous one. I am blessed to know her and that she thought of me to ask me to help. I am a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner with years of experience. My dream was to be able to use my talent and experience in an extremely significant way. What is more significant that being able to help those most in need! Women and newborns in a war torn region with absolutely no resources or infrastructure to help at the most vulnarable time in life (childbirth!). Lorna Owens showed me how and encouraged me to make the first journey to meet with and begin educating the midwives and rural birth attendants in deep bush regions of the DR Congo. It was the most tremendous, most rewarding experience. I saw how my time and money was put to valuable use. I am encouraged to do more and know that I am making a great difference in the lives of those who are at most risk.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
recruit more people to travel the region for more frequent regular education sessions
