What are you asking for money for?
We – a small team of doctors and midwives from East London - are returning to a South India to run two obstetric emergency skills courses for 10 days in November and December. We are asking for money to support this endeavor. This is our second set of courses and builds on the partnership we have already formed with this network of hospitals in South India. On our last course, ten of us trained 93 doctors, nurses and midwives to deal with emergencies and develop safer childbirth techniques.
Why is this important?
The day of giving birth/being born is the most dangerous day for women and babies in the world. The overwhelming majority of women and babies who die on that day die needlessly: because there are not the resources to save them, or because those looking after them simply don’t do the right thing in an emergency. The second of these is the problem we are tackling.
Why should I give money?
Because we are a tiny charity and every penny really counts! We have no overheads as our time is donated. We do everything ourselves. We have a history of delivering these courses, and have previously found that the learning given in them sticks. The intervention is sustainable as in addition to delivering training ourselves we also train participants to be trainers themselves, resulting in courses for others within the institutions we visit and those nearby.
What will we spend it on?
Not on our pay – we are on leave! Money goes to fund the cost of transporting us and our equipment; of providing teaching materials; and evaluating the program.
What we do
Training: Maternity emergencies require fast, safe and coordinated responses by a trained multiprofessional team. We have developed a maternity critical critical care training package to use around the world!
Please donate and share! Every penny is much appreciated!
