Please come and hear the beautiful music our friends from Ukraine are sharing with us once again. In 2014 the Orchestra and Choir toured Canada and we had the privilege of producing a beautiful music special called “Songs for Ukraine”. At that time, we raised support for the many families who had been displaced by the violent conflict that was rocking Ukraine. Sadly, it rages on two years later.
Close to 1.7 million people have had their lives in turmoil as a result of the ongoing violence that continues in the eastern regions. Families are still struggling for survival and have been forced to rely on the aid that is given through churches and organizations helping where they can. Our partner has been making deliveries of food and relief items, but with winter once again approaching they will need even more.
The Kyiv Symphony Orchestra and Choir will be touring from Sept 14th – Oct 18th.
Approximately 800 women die each day due to complications during pregnancy and childbirth. 99% of these deaths occur in the developing world and most of them could have been prevented. Thanks to the Mother Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, we can help moms have a safe and positive birthing experience. Our goal is to help improve maternal health in hospitals and clinics in parts of East Africa through a specialized training/education program. This program not only allows us to come alongside healthcare professionals, it also enables us to provide the necessary resources to improve some of the horrible conditions mothers give birth in. Replacing rusted beds and old torn mattresses are the obvious external solutions we know will help brighten the environment. However, the greatest need for mothers in Africa is just that people would care. Together, we can help save mothers and their babies.
