How Your $1 Can Save Lives

~ Posted on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 12:01 AM ~

Greetings from Malaysia!

Today I'd like you to join me in partnering with Dionna of Code Name: Mama, BirthSwell and Circle of Health International to improve maternity and newborn care in Haiti. Today I'm asking for your help. The help I'm asking you to give is very simple: you can donate $1.00. One little dollar. What can one dollar buy these days?

  • A couple of postage stamps

  • A bottle of water (maybe)

  • Less than a third of a gallon of gas

  • For Malaysians: The Star newspaper for the weekend

  • For Malaysians: One of those kiddy-rides you pay for your child to enjoy a few minutes of ride

But if every person who subscribes to this blog gives one dollar, you can send an experienced midwife to HCM Maternity Clinic in Fond Parisien, Haiti, an earthquake-affected region. Your dollar can provide education and mentoring for the two Haitian midwives who work at the clinic. Your dollar can improve the maternity care for the 2,000 women seen at that clinic every year. Your dollar can improve outcomes for mothers and babies. Your dollar can save lives.

To read more about how your donations can help, please visit the full post at Code Name: Mama. I am helping Dionna of Code Name: Mama raise donations to Get Karen to Haiti. Click on the picture below to donate - please give at least $1 today!

Please visit the Get Karen to Haiti page to donate your dollar today!

** P.S: Just in case you're wondering, I donated too and although I'm from Malaysia, I don't think which country we are located at, matters or differs. If you are a mother, you will understand and appreciate good maternity care and want the best for your child. I'm a full-time mummy
