We are very happy to share with you that our first student midwife, Lensa, graduated last month as a BSc Midwife!
With the money raised from our first ever Muffins for Midwives campaign we were able to fund Lensa’s midwifery training and after 4 years of studying, she has now completed her course in Ethiopia. Here you can see Lensa celebrating her graduation with her proud parents, sister and some of her course friends.
Isn’t it amazing how lovely supporters hosting a Muffins for Midwives event could help to achieve something so wonderful – thank you!
You can read more about Lensa’s story here.
1 in 22 women die in pregnancy and childbirth in developing countries. Having a midwife or skilled birth attendant present at birth is one of the most effective interventions to save lives. It costs, on average, just £80 a month to train a midwife so together, people here can help midwives in Africa to save the lives of mothers and their babies.
A Muffins for Midwives event can be held any time during the year! If you’re interested in becoming a Muffinista and hosting a tea party, coffee morning or cake sale you can get your free fundraising pack here.
