The 2013 goal for Clinic at a Time, Inc. is a lofty one: To build a four room birthing center in the rural Ethiopian town of Bichena. At this birthing center, women can labor, deliver, and recover in a facility dedicated to their care and good health. This is an urgently important project as maternal healthcare is currently in crisis in Ethiopia.
We know the need personally all too well. Our twin sons, Samuel and Asher, whom we adopted from Ethiopia in 2010 were in desperate need to be adopted after their mother, Marta, died giving birth to them. We often think, “What if?” What if Marta had access to the maternity care we have here in the US? What if there was a clinic nearby that Marta could have gone to while in labor instead of giving birth in her mud hut alone, while her husband was walking for hours to find the closest midwife to help her? While we are eternally grateful that Samuel and Asher have become our sons, the truth is that Marta should not have died. She should have been able to raise her twin sons with her loving husband. She should have been given the opportunity to have access to maternal healthcare----the same healthcare we so often take for granted in the United States.
In her honor, we humbly request your presence and support of a fundraiser we will be holding at the Lona Gallery for Clinic at a Time on May 18th.
On behalf of Marta, ourselves, and the beautiful and resilient women of Ethiopia, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and look forward to seeing you on May 18th!
