IMA saves the lives of mothers and babies in Uganda by providing prenatal, birth and newborn care free of charge. Each mother and child is treated with kindness and expertise. I was an honor to visit and work in the clinic.

IMA provides aid in areas that other groups do not go, supporting women and children with vital medicines and vaccinations and also helping train local midwives. I participated in the first trip to Afghanistan in 2004. Basic medicines and basic sanitary needs were much needed and provided by this first mission. IMA went on to help train Afghan women to be midwives in their villages. This was a much needed service in a country who tops the charts as one of the worst maternal and infant mortality rates in the world.

IMA serves women where maternal and infant mortalility rates are amongst the highest in the world. This organization has trained midwives in Afghanistan and is currently supporting a maternity clinic in Uganda. The work that IMA has done has made a huge impact in areas where maternal and basic health services are non-existent or severely underserved.

The Great!

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

Afghanistan assisting in midwife training and providing assistance with medical supplies and attending births at maternity hospitals in Kabul.
