Proceeds from this event will go to Punch Out Poverty a registered 501-C3 non-profit organization. The goal is to raise at least $30,000 to help complete the third phase of construction of the maternity ward. This maternity ward will be a great addition to this community.
Here is why the time to help is now:
"Reality is that pregnancy in this region is an endangerment. Life offers an ultimatum: either bear a complicated pregnancy at home, or take a risk against time and travel 9 hours through an open ocean, with the hopes of reaching a mainland hospital.
More than likely the mother, the child, and often both do not survive. We have made MOTHERS our first target for aid. If it is true that the children of today are the society of tomorrow, then together, we must ensure their existence. A maternity ward is a fight for the existence of mothers, family, and the future."
- Punch Out Poverty
We thank you in advance for your commitment to making this vision a reality.
