My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Midwife Assistance, Inc, Boulder, CO, USA
My wife works for this nonprofit, and I have come to know their great work through her. I was always someone who said, "shouldn't we fix our own problems in the U.S. first?" And I have learned during the past several years to see the world as more interconnected. I realize there is a huge difference between the quality of care my wife received when pregnant and during delivery than the women of Uganda or Afghanistan receive. This disparity of care is inherently unjust. I also know that the dollars we contribute to IMA go very far. I think the overall cost per patient visit for the year in 2009 was about $8 per person - $8 dollars per patient visit includes all lab work, care from a doctor or midwife and medications. This figure includes emergency feeding for children, vaccinations, mosquito net and food distribution, HIV/AIDS testing and treatment! I know the money we donate to IMA really makes a difference on the ground. Because my wife works for the organization, I know how little overhead this nonprofit has - I know how much dedication the employees and volunteers have, and I know that my dollars really save lives.
