Women’s Health Van-Helping women & children access treatment
January 24, 2011 | Filed under: Blog | Posted by: urfblog
We urgently need to raise $3,000 more to pay off the van by Feb 10th. Please help us build a healthier community. Thanks to all our generous donors who have contributed toward the $9,000 already collected for this worthy cause. Women in rural villages suffer complications during childbirth because they can’t transport to access medical care at distant clinics and hospitals. The van is a partial solution to this danger that threatens the lives of hundreds of women and their children. It will be used to transport women and children who need critical medical care to hospitals and clinics.
You can help us raise the remaining $3,000 by making a contribution to Uganda Rural Fund, 475 Main Street, West Springfield, MA 01089. OR online at www.ugandaruralfund.org Thank You very much.
Watch this video to hear women themselves tell their struggle to access health care at critical moments and the challenge for transportation to get to good clinics and hospitals far away from the villages.
