Dear friends of GAIN,
Because of you, we not only reached our year-end goal, but surpassed it! We cannot express our gratitude adequately, not only on behalf of our team here at UCSF, but also on behalf of our Malawian colleagues. Your support will impact over 10,000 births just in the first quarter of 2019 alone.
Breaking news from our evaluation team, in the 3rd quarter of 2018 in Neno district, Malawi, there were ZERO maternal deaths in the units where GAIN nurses work. All GAIN partners are proud to report this, and our vision is to report zero preventable maternal deaths every quarter in 2019. However, there is still work to do: more nurses want to be part of the project, more health ministries are asking for our help, and we are innovating to offer the best and most current training.
Your gifts are especially meaningful given you will never meet the mothers and nurses you are supporting. You are now part of our team and we will make sure everyone at our sites knows how much support is coming from you.
Look for regular updates from us, babies are born every hour at our sites! Meanwhile, we send our deepest thanks and warmest wishes for a peaceful and healthy new year.
The GAIN project team
