Mothers Helping Mothers from Haiti

Healing Haiti has started a wonderful new Maternal Health program through Grace Clinic in the village of Titanyen, Haiti.  The Maternal Health Program provides pre/post-partum medical care, nutritional education, and counseling for pregnant mothers.  This program is greatly improving the lives of mothers and their children, which is ultimately having a positive impact on families in the community.  Alleluia has the amazing opportunity to put together Newborn Birth Kits and Layette Kits to be given to new moms and newborns who come in to the clinic for a medical check post-delivery.  This is a wonderful incentive program to encourage these moms to come and be seen by a medical provider after the baby is born. 

Please consider financially sponsoring one of the kits ($30) or donating items to go in them.
