Helping Hands for Haiti

Date/Time

Sep 14, 2019
09:00 AM until 02:00 PM

Description

Infant & mother mortality rates in Haiti are amount the highest in the Western Hemisphere. Birthing bags are saving lives. On Saturday September 14, 2019, 9AM 2 PM we will be sewing and assembling birthing bags. This has become a semi-annual event at Good Shepherd Community of Faith. The bags are easy to make and fill. Both sewers and non-sewers can help. Preventing infection in both mother and infant, limiting maternal blood loss & offering training and support for birth attendants is critically important. These kits are more than just busy work for churches or other groups. In many instances they offer a choice between life and death. 

All are welcome
