Maternal health for poor communities in India
Premature babies in India are dying each year due to a lack of simple, life-saving medical equipment.
In Madhya Pradesh, one of the poorest states in northern India, Christian Hospital Chhatarpur serves some of the country's most vulnerable and under-privileged people.
To give more babies the chance of life, the hospital is working to encourage more deliveries in hospitals and clinics, provide better care of pregnant women and children under 5, improve nutrition, and provide training of more Reproductive and Child Health nurses.
You can read more about EMMS International and how they are supporting maternal and infant health in India here http://www.emms.org/vital-work/projects/chhatarpur-protecting-mothers-babies/ They also featured an article I wrote for them about this challenge here https://www.emms.org/about-emms/the-news/running-focus-amy/
This event is to mark the 6th anniversary of my daughter Rose. “I have loved you with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself." (Jeremiah 31)
Sponsored walk in solidarity with Indian mothers
To raise awareness about the need for better access to maternal health in India so that more babies have a chance of life, I will be doing a sponsored walk/run from my home to the Royal Infirmary Maternity Ward in Edinburgh and back again. I hope to run as much of the way as I can.
