Help Midwife Nicole go to Uganda!

I am a midwife heading to Uganda for 3 months to work at a birth center, 20 miles south of south Sudan.I will be practicing midwifery as well as teaching. I will have students from the region as well as students from the USA. My teaching partner and fellow midwives will be local, traditional midwives from Uganda and the surrounding area. I need your help to get me there! I look forward to volunteering with Mother Health International. Most of the women we will be serving are refugees, internally displaced and/or recently resettled. This mission serves many women and babies as well as training more midwives! The World Health organization has a goal to see 350,000 more midwives by 2015. Let's get going! I am a Certified Professional Midwife with a private practice as well as an organization in Detroit called Birth Detroit we are committed to combating the infant and maternal mortality rate at home and around the globe. Thank you for helping me get to Africa to help spread the midwifery model of care.
