While we were in Manila this year we were honoured to partner with Days For Girls International
Please check out their website for some fantastic reports and details
One of our most impacting mornings was spent with this gorgeous young mum and her newborn.
Midwife Sandra a member of our Birthing Better Babies Team (Impact Church) was able to give her a Days for Girls Post-partum Kit and explain exactly how she needed to use it. It was a joy to watch.
It was an emotional experience, every response we have had has been gratitude and delight.
We are saving these women at least 40 pesos a day (that is approximately $1.00) doesn’t sound much right? BUt this family only earns approximately $1 a day, her husband is a pedicab driver. These Kits CAN and DO save lives.
Today this family will be able to afford rice AND some fish. Instead of buying sanitary pads.
Very very exciting! I am enriched knowing that a small thing can affect lives!
Oh by the way, they asked me to name the Baby…a little boy I named him Joshua.
I love my work….. it makes me happy!
Thanks to Days for Girls you empower me to empower others I am grateful!
