Empowering Gambian Mothers in Need

$1,915 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 11 months
Imagine... if today your wife, daughter, sister, or aunt did not have the opportunity to receive life saving information and resources to ensure a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. This is a Gambian woman's reality.

I have seen firsthand maternal and infant deaths due to preventable complications during pregnancy and birth. All it would have taken was the time to provide prenatal education in a structured and engaging way to prevent this outcome, and that is exactly why From Mother to You aims to combat this prevalent issue in The Gambia, West Africa.

Many women are illiterate and From Mother to You is raising funds to create an image-only pregnancy guide book to empower women with life saving  information to reduce the prevalence of pregnancy related complications. Also, custom nursery bags will encourage birth preparedness.  When a mother is empowered with knowledge and equipped with the resources for a healthy pregnancy, she will have everything she needs to raise a healthy child and live a healthy life.

From Mother To You believes  a healthy mother, a healthy baby is the foundation of a health nation. Be a part of this intervention with just as little as $5-$10 to make our goals into reality! Visit www.frommothertoyou.org for more information about The Gambia and how From Mother to You is actively working on improving maternal health.

A tremendous THANK YOU, to everyone who has donated to From Mother To You. I started this GoFundMe campaign for the Clinton Global Initiative challenge that ended this weekend.

I wanted to share that the funds will go towards printing prenatal and postnatal books, tailoring nursery bags, and maternal resources for mothers in Farafenni, The Gambia. By 2019, we aim to reach 100 women in collaboration with Gambian midwives and nurses who are currently making change at the community level.

This campaign will remain open, so please continue sharing with your friends and family.

Again, thank you and let's continue empowering and educating women
because they are our investment towards a healthier world!

Peace and love,
Fatoumata Jaiteh
