My Message

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. From May 16, 2012 I will be living and working in Ethiopia as a Cuso International volunteer helping with long term development in maternal and neonatal healthcare. I am placed in Bahir Dar, a city on the highlands in northwestern Ethiopia. I will be working as a Program Co-ordinator at the local Felege Hiwot Hospital involving in the training of midwives and birth attendants. Ethiopia has one of the highest maternal death rates in the world. In fact, 25,000 Ethiopian women died every year giving birth and 500,000 more suffering long-term disabilities due to complications during pregnancy and delivery. This is mainly due to women delivering babies at home absolutely without the care of any skilled medical personnel. Imagine the skyrocketing number of orphaned children and babies left behind without the love and care of their mothers. We need to change this reality. It will take time but with your support we can do it. The country desperately needs volunteers while new health care workers are being trained, especially in the field of maternal health. My placement will help the people on the ground achieve lasting change, through sharing knowledge skills and resources. Right now, Cuso International volunteer instructors and trainers are still very much needed. Your support and donations will be greatly appreciated so that Cuso International can continue to send volunteers abroad to the needed countries to improve their healthcare systems as well as to aide in their long term development. So please join me in this good cause by sending your generous donations using the button below. You can also subscribe to my blog, One Moment in Time- SinoGirl in Ethiopia , and get updates as I am able from Ethiopia. With heartfelt thanks, Dr. Angela Lee Cuso International volunteer PS. Every dollar raised is leveraged 9 times, thanks to an agreement with CIDA, the Canadian International Development Agency! Your gift of $10 becomes $100. $25 becomes $250. $100 becomes $1,000...and so on. All gifts and donations are tax-deductible and will be receipt via email for this calendar year.
