From CMMB: Mother's Day Match - Only 4 Days Left

Dear Friends,
New life is fragile and mothers and babies die in childbirth. This Mother's Day, help us build a new maternity ward in rural Kenya so we can protect mothers and babies from the start. Give now to double your impact - but hurry, time is running out.
What is at stake? Life.
Agnes in Kenya was already in labor when she started a six-hour walk to the nearest hospital to give birth. She didn’t make it. Her baby was born on the side of a muddy road in the pouring rain. Baby Edith developed an infection and died before she was two weeks old.Why a maternity ward now? 
In the communities where we work in rural Kenya, only 28% of women will give birth at a health facility. That means more than 70% give birth without skilled care - maybe at home with a mother-in-law or a neighbor. When something goes wrong, no one knows what to do, and so women and newborns needlessly die. A new maternity ward will save lives by bringing skilled care where it’s needed most.We can’t let this happen again.
That’s why I’m asking you to help build a maternity ward - just in time for Mother’s Day. Give now - $100, $200, $500, or any amount - and another generous friend of CMMB will double your Mother’s Day donation, but only until Sunday, May 13th.
Hurry! Tomorrow is the last day to add your mom's name to our digital Mother's Day Wall of Love, with a customized card for the women you are honoring.Women and children are counting on the generosity of special friends like you. Thank you for your love and compassion. Thank you for investing in the health of mothers and babies living in extreme poverty.
