Your support is critical; even a small GIFT can make a BIG difference!

 

Ethiopiaid Canada is getting involved in an exciting new 4-year maternal, newborn and child health program in the remote region of Afar! Afar has the second highest level of maternal mortality in the country where 717 maternal deaths occur for every 100,000 births, compared with 11 for every 100,000 births in Canada. Ethiopiaid is supporting its local partner Amref Health to train health workers (midwives, nurses & health practitioners) to establish essential services and reduce maternal and child mortality. There will be improved water, sanitation and hygiene facilities; newly-built maternity waiting rooms; life-saving medical supplies and nutrient-rich foods. Just one trained midwife can provide care for 500 expectant mothers and deliver 100 babies every year.

This is just a fraction of our efforts in Ethiopia, all of which will benefit greatly from your support!
