Giving Voice to Voiceless of Uganda

I'm raising money to travel to Uganda to do a 6 week research project this summer. Please continue reading for more information, and thank you for any support you are able to offer!
I'm working with an organization called Safe Mothers Safe Babies, who work to improve prenatal, maternal, and childcare, as Uganda doesn't have the same access to healthcare we do or the same kind of awareness of the importance of it. During the 6 weeks I am in Uganda, I will be collecting stories from mothers in the community about their experiences with maternal and child health, and using these stories to help others understand the importance of medical care.  During a visit to Nicaragua a few years ago, my mom and I attended a baby shower for a woman pregnant with twins. She lived in a very impoverished area, and if there were any complications with her pregnancy, her and her children would suffer or even die. I am going to Uganda so that I can help people like this woman. I want to help make health care more accessible to them, and help improve their lives. This trip will cost about $5000, which is why I am raising money for it. I will also be doing a video documentation for those that are interested. Please help me make this a reality and help make a difference for these young women and their unborn babies. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, even if you aren't in a position to donate, and thank you so much for your support!
