I continue to meet the patients, staff and international volunteers who are part of International Midwife Assistance's health work in Uganda. All speak highly about International Midwife Assistance as an organisation. I believe there is more to their gratitude...of which comes blessings to everyone who donates to International Midwife Assistance and helps it extend quality healthcare to those in need that they wouldn't have otherwise found or delivered easily.

Having worked for sometime and continue to hear reports of IMAs lifechanging partnership with the Teso Safemotherhood Project in Soroti, am honored to write a review for IMA and how it has impacted on the lives of women in Soroti. I specifically would like to testify of a woman whom I escorted to the TSMP clinic in Soroti. She lived with me in Amuria village. Prior to our visit to the clinic, the woman had lost hope after going to several clinics in and around our town for care. She had sold off so much of the food stuff to pay for treatment., but was not realising any remarkable improvement in her health. I am writing this on the behalf of the woman as well., that since she was diagnosed with a PID and ever since getting drugs and advice from the clinic free, she has improved considerably. She can now go to the garden, and care for her 3 children. She has hope again, and wishes to convey her heartfelt thanks to IMA, and for the Teso Safemotherhood Project.

IMA is a terrific organization that helps women in need - often in dire circumstances without hope of other trained medical assistance. The IMA midwives, staff and volunteers consistently put themselves in harms way for the safety and well-being of women and their babies. It's awesome!
