WelTel: Give Ada & Toto a lifeline

$2,850 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 2 months
Ada has lived her entire life without access to consistent medical care. Tonight, 9 months pregnant, she finds herself in distress and alone.

Living more than 300km from a healthcare facility in Kenya's Northern Arid Lands, help is almost impossible to find.

Luckily, Ada has a lifeline; she is enrolled on WelTel, a proven SMS solution that connects patients to care when they need it most. Using simple language, Ada communicates her distress in Swahili. A text, 'Shida ', connects her to the care she needs.

300 km away, her community health worker receives the text, calls Ada and quickly recognizes her symptoms; Ada has a life-threatening condition: pre-eclampsia. Without immediate care, she and her baby will die. 

The healthcare worker leaps into action, dispatching a local driver to rush Ada to the hospital for emergency surgery. With the support of WelTel and the dedication of community healthcare workers, Ada delivers a healthy baby girl, Kibibi.

You too can be the difference between life and death for women like Ada. Read more about the WelTel solution at www.weltel.org and donate today to save a life. 

Financial contributions to WelTel International through this campaign will go directly to providing maternal and child health support services in the most remote regions of Kenya where women live on less than $1 a day. For just $10USD per year, one woman and child can be supported with WelTel, putting their health in their hands, and linking them to care through a simple text that has the power to save a life.

Ada and her baby are real people, doing well and thriving today. Names have been changed to protect their identities.
