Spring Dedication: Hannah's Garden
Hannah's very short time with us had a greening effect on every life that she touched - doctors, friends, family. We are excited to greet Spring this year by planting Seeds of Compassion in Hannah's Garden through a $5,000 donation to Children's Hospital Kenya Project to support the work of Dr. Amelie von Saint André , a critical care doctor at Seattle Children's Hospital who, with equally stellar ICU and emergency room staff, saved Hannah's life over and over.
Dr. von Saint André is now poised to do for babies across the globe what she did for Hannah here and is spearheading a program led by Seattle Children's Hospital to save the lives of thousands of babies dying needlessly every day in sub-Saharan Africa. This important Global Health project will strive to help improve infant death rates by empowering mothers to play an integral role in saving the lives of their critically ill children. We see the Children's Hospital Kenya Project as the very best example of Mother House work in the world.
Therefore, for the first time, The Mother House Fund is not only donating, but also actively fundraising, to support a local organization. During the month of March, we are reaching out to our community of friends and partners to help Children’s Hospital secure the funding they need to develop this important project.
Please join us in supporting their work by donating to the Children’s Hospital Kenya Project today. We also encourage you to pass this opportunity on to those you think may be interested in helping Children’s Hospital use their expertise and resources to save the lives of children in sub-Saharan Africa. Thank you for your consideration of support.
