"According to the 2011 State of the World's Midwifery Report by the UNFPA, approximately 350,000 women die while pregnant or giving birth every year"” almost 1,000 a day. Of these women, 99 percent die in developing countries. An estimated 8 million more suffer serious illnesses and lifelong disabilities as a result of complications at the time of childbirth. Every year up to 2 million newborns die within the first 24 hours of life. In addition, there are 2.6 million stillbirths of which approximately 45 percent occur during labor and birth."
Hello, my name is Adaline Carlile, and I've accepted God's call to go out and help turn those statistics around by becoming a midwife! I have recently been accepted into a 1-Year Clinical Internship program, sponsored by Midwife International, where I will be spending one year in a third world country learning how to be a NARM - licensed midwife. Midwife International sends student-midwives all over the globe, including Kenya, Cameroon, India, Guatemala, and many others. However, I have been blessed with the opportunity to study in Cambodia! But I can't do it without YOUR help!
My goal is to raise $10,000, which covers the bulk of my tuition. With your contribution, whether it be one dollar or one hundred, you will be helping me achieve my goals as an international midwife, but also, you will help provide money for the clinic I'll be stationed at, which will further provide support for women and babies who's lives really depend on proper health care! (To learn more about Midwife International, watch this video!)
I truly believe in the power of prayer, so if you are unable to donate, your thoughts and prayers are GREATLY appreciated! Furthermore, sharing this with family and friends would be great! Facebook, Twitter, whatever social networking site tickles your fancy, are also great tools to spread the word! Remember, this is so much more than funding for school, this is an investment in the lives of women and babies who are in dire need of proper health care!
I am so thankful for all that you guys are doing, and I'll keep you in my prayers. THANK YOU AGAIN!!! God bless!
