Dear Friends and Family,
The Healy-Craig family is participating once again in Maine Walks with Haiti, Konbit Sante’s annual fundraising 5k event, to support dependable primary health care, including pediatric and maternal child health programs, infrastructure development and local capacity building for Portland’s sister city in Haiti. Konbit Sante works with two major hospitals and two health clinics in northern Haiti at which over 5,000 births occur each year. This year's event will take place over Mother's Day weekend. Konbit Sante is particularly focused this year on improving health outcomes for expectant mothers and their newborns through the following efforts:
- Increasing access to high quality prenatal and postnatal visits
- Educating and supporting traditional birth attendants
- Improving access to essential medicines, supplies and equipment
We hope you can support our efforts to strengthen maternal and child health programs by joining us for the 5k event or making a contribution below. Having visited Haiti last year, I know your contribution will be well spent. We are deeply grateful for your support.
