A few months ago I posted about my friend Steffany and Because Every Mother Matters. Some of you helped pay for a surgery for a mother in Ethiopia with a prolapsed uterus for which we were so thankful! The mother had her surgery, came through beautifully but while still in the hospital it was discovered she had fairly advanced cancer. Due to being at a medical facility her life was prolonged a few months much to the gratefulness of her husband and children. She did die recently from the cancer but a heartfelt thanks from her husband to all who helped prolong her life. They were so thankful!
Steffany is at it again!! Head on over to her blog and donate again to help fund an Ethiopian clinic for maternity patients. You will read some statistics on her blog but did you know that 1 in 11 women die from pregnancy related issues in Africa!! I almost cannot wrap my head around the numbers. Funds are being raised to build the clinic in Ethiopia with a goal of raising $5,000 by Mothers Day. Consider donating in honor of your mother or ask to have a donation given in your honor. Let's face it: we do not need more stuff! Help save the lives of some mother's this year for mother's day!!
