dollars for doma

Thank you so much for stopping by to help a wonderful, wonderful cause!!  I know it's not the Susan G. Komen Foundation or the American Heart Association.  But I urge beg you to read more about doma.  They are doing awesome things in Russia, Ethiopia, Uganda, Ukraine and right here in the U.S. In short, "doma’s mission is to intervene early and to prevent future crisis in the lives of children worldwide who are abandoned, abused, and neglected."

My sister-in-law, Amber, is the medical director for Doma.  She travels to Ethiopia several times a year and takes medical teams to work in rural Ethiopia where people have no access to medical care.  Because of this lack of medical care, women die in child birth and children die young.  Families are ravaged by death and illness - all because of a lack of basic prenatal and postnatal medical care.  Amber is in the process of planning, building, and running a medical clinic in Bora, a rural mountain village where rates of infant and maternal mortality and illness are heart-breakingly high.

On her last trip this summer she went and met with the village elders to talk about plans for a prenatal medical center in their area.  One of the village elders, a wise and elderly man for whom infant and maternal mortality has always been a part of life, stood up and said to Amber, "Thank you for the work you are doing here.  What you have done is brought hope to our people.  You are an answer to our prayers."
