Last April, the response to a dinner that Hope Neikirk and Caren Baker sponsored gave birth to "The Midwife Project." The funds raised that night, along with donations from people who were not able to attend the dinner, exceeded our goal. We made the monies needed to hire Elizabeth Arikoba for a full year. We also purchased a scooter (boda boda) that allows her to expand her care to many more people in and around the villages of Wairaka and Kagoma Gate. Because of you, the participants in the Midwife Project, Elizabeth is presently delivering desperately needed health care to the women and babies of the these villages.
Hope and Caren held another dinner in November which also exceeded their expectations. Caren opened her beautiful home once again to cater this wonderful dinner (3 courses with wine and dessert bar)! This will be an annual event to serve the health and birthing needs of the women and babies of the Uganda villages of Kagoma Gate and Wairaka.
Here is a video and pictures for your enjoyment!
