Craft Hope

On Saturday, my monthly crafty group and I are going to put together safe-delivery kits as part of the current Craft Hope Project 11.  I am very excited to finally participate in one of their projects!  Deadline is fast approaching (March 1), but the recipient organization – Konbit Sante – is located about an hour away from here, so if I mail the package on Monday, they will receive it on Tuesday.  If you have not yet heard of Konbit Sante, then PLEASE click on the link.  They have been doing amazing work in Haiti for a long time.  You can read about the project from Konbit Sante’s press release here as well.  Only 1 in 10,000 Haitians have access to a physician.  1 in 8 children die before the age of five.  The maternity mortality rate in Haiti is 1,400 for every 100,000.  These kits are a small step in a safe delivery.  I am not sure how many we will be making on Saturday.  My goal right now is 10.
