Project Medishare Becomes GlobalGiving Partner
“We’re thrilled to have Project Medishare as part of our community. Project Medishare has met our rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support, and we’re committed to providing tools, training, and support as they learn, grow and become more effective,” said Mari Kuraishi, President and Co-Founder of GlobalGiving. “GlobalGiving donors value the opportunity to support nonprofits like Project Medishare, knowing that they’ll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work.”
The funds raised via GlobalGiving will be used to encourage pregnant women to seek continued prenatal care at one of Project Medishare’s two maternity centers. As an incentive, we will distribute newborn welcome kits to 75 moms. The kits will include a baby box to provide a safe space for infants to sleep, along with essential health and hygiene items to help keep mom and baby healthy.
“We’re so excited to be one of the newest members of the GlobalGiving community,” said Project Medishare Development Manager Christa Michaud. “Haiti has one of the highest maternal and infant death rates in the world. This project will ensure women receive the care they need before, during and after pregnancy. We’re so grateful to our donors for supporting our GlobalGiving project, and helping us make pregnancy and delivery safer for moms and babies in Haiti.”
