Birthing Kits

While at the ACWW Triennial Conference we learned of the need to provide birthing kits to those in poverty in developing nations. Interest has been expressed to pursue this as a project.

Clean Water

This  project is in the development stage.  We are looking at options to help bring clean water to a developing country.  We are considering joining with ACWW by contributing to their work or donating through CleanWater.org.
