I have the most unlikely, unforgettable personal story about The Mother and Child Project: Raising Our Voices for Health and Hope, compiled by Hope Through Healing Hands, that I am a bit wild to tell you, but that will have to wait now till the thermometer co-operates — but you have to read these stories from people like Melinda Gates, Kay Warren, Bill Frist, Kimberly Williams Paisley, Michael W. Smith, Christine Caine, and more so that people of faith understand why it’s important to get involved.
Please join the CSIS Global Health Policy Center and Hope Through Healing Hands for an event to launch the new book, The Mother & Child Project: Raising Our Voices for Health and Hope, compiled by Hope Through Healing Hands and published by HarperCollins and Zondervan. This book brings together 47 notable contributors, including Melinda Gates, Kay Warren, and President Jimmy Carter, to raise awareness and promote advocacy for maternal, newborn, and child health worldwide, with a special emphasis on the importance of healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies.
I have come to Kijabe, Kenya with the help of the Hope Through Healing Hands with the goal of training local providers in the OR and ICU. My first days in Kenya have been uplifting, but I have been surprised at the case volume, severity, and complexity of the system here at AIC Kijabe Hospital.
On our second day in Guatemala, we had the privilege of traveling to the northern area of Coban. In this rainforest landscape, we landed amidst the hazy fog to visit a local hospital as well as a family.
This week, CARE is directing a congressional delegation to Guatemala including Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) and Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), among other activists. The goal of our trip was to witness first-hand the lives of women and children across the nation in terms of health.
Hope Through Healing Hands sponsored a luncheon for IF: Gathering attendees on Saturday, February 7. We were thrilled to host more than 200 attendees who came to learn more about the critical global health issues of mothers and children.
Spoiled. That’s the only way to describe how I feel heading back to the states. I feel that I had the opportunity to practice medicine the way my 6-year-old-self imagined it while in Guyana and I couldn’t be more thankful for the experience.
