HANDS for Babies: March 2013 Update


Did you know that “a baby born in Ethiopia is 10 times more likely to die within the first month of life than a baby born in the United States?” You can really make a difference to the lives of babies born in Ethiopia. We are reaching out to all of our friends and colleagues as we make giant strides towards meeting our yearly fundraising goal.

We have a few U.S. based medical professionals committed to traveling to Ethiopia this year to provide much needed services. Our goal is to have multiple teams, each consisting of a neonatologist, a nurse and a respiratory therapist, making the trip to Ethiopia and staying between two to four weeks while exchanging experiences with local medical professionals.

We anticipate each trip to cost close to $10,000. This would cover expenses related to travel and shipping of medical supplies/equipment. Our aim is to organize four to six such trips in 2013. We have raised enough funds to pay for our upcoming April and June trips, and are now raising funds to cover the expenses of our July and October trips.

Please consider making a donation through our website.
