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