Event description

Description


Vered Kater, an Israeli veteran nurse, auxiliary-midwife and a Holocaust survivor, is saving the lives of mothers and babies around the world.

How?

And what challenges has she dealt with in providing maternal and neonatal health in 29 countries including Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Burundi, Indonesia and more? How is she establishing TAG’s maternal health project, Drop of Milk (Tipat Halav), in Myanmar?

The Drop of Milk program, established in Israel, decreased the rate of maternal mortality in Israel to one of the lowest in the world (lower than in the U.S.) — from a high that was equal to Myanmar’s today.

Hear Vered describe her work and how Drop of Milk transforms the lives of mothers and babies in developing countries. (And why, at 75 years old, she won’t stop.)

Where: home of Ellen Freeman Roth and Steven Roth, 34 Brenton Rd., Weston

When: Thursday, Nov. 1, 7-9 p.m. (program 7:30-8, questions 8-8:30)

Hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be served.
