Virginia Gildersleeves International Fund (VGIF) has given MFM a grant for a midwife to go out to our 8 villages to supervise our matrons (woman in the village who assists women with births.) This is a follow up grant to the first VGIF grant which allowed us to train the matrons in safe delivery practices. Now these brave women will have a midwife to monitor their work and assist them in honing their skills to a new level.
The matrons were so grateful for the first training. Several told me “Now I understand the birth process.” This grant will give them the opportunity to discuss with and learn from midwife.
Thank you VGIF!
