From CMMB: Who makes house calls? You do.

"Some days, it feels like God drives our home-based care truck!"
- Dr. Kathleen Hartmann, CMMB volunteer
Dear Friends,
Our volunteers provide life-saving healthcare, love and compassion to people suffering from extreme poverty. They are an example of our vision and values in action. Recently, I was so moved by one of their stories that I had to share it.
Just last week in Swaziland, Dr. Al and Kathleen Hartmann made a last minute decision to make a home visit and check on Gogo, a sick, isolated, elderly grandmother. Gogo's health is very weak and she cannot walk, but she cares for her nine-year-old granddaughter Snegugu, who has both cognitive and physical disabilities. Snegugu can't speak and struggles to walk with a deformed leg. They both live in extreme conditions. Kathleen says:
"When we reached Gogo and Snegugu, they had absolutely nothing to eat for days. Gogo's blood pressure was very high and she neededimmediate attention. We made some instant porridge that we keep in the truck. We'll keep an eye on them and bring them more food. We are so happy we visited this family this morning!"Women and children like Gogo and Snegugu are often forgotten. That's why they need compassionate friends like you.
Your gift of $50, $75, $100, or any amount, brings life-saving quality healthcare, medicine, love and compassion to people suffering from extreme poverty.
With your support, we make house calls, bringing dignity to those who need it most. Please make a gift to the "forgotten" today.GIVE NOWWith many thanks,
President and CEO
