The maternal mortality rate in Guatemala is 140 deaths per 100,000 births. In Canada, that number is 12.
We invite you to join David Fafard, Program Director, IMPACT Program (Improving Maternal Participation and Access through Community Training) and CAUSE Canada for an inspirational evening as Dave shares the learnings and first-hand experiences he’s had while working in the IMPACT program in Central America.
This maternal, newborn, and child health program works in over 70 small communities in rural and remote regions of Guatemala and Honduras, with the ultimate goal to reduce maternal and child mortality rates. By training local staff and midwives, CAUSE Canada is making significant progress in empowering communities to access primary health care.
The Canmore community has been instrumental in supporting this program! We hope you will join us for a report back on what is happening in the program, learn more about the program and meet David. The evening involves a short presentation, Q & A, tea, coffee and treats.
