Midwives on Missions of Service (MOMS)

Midwives on Missions of Service (MOMS)

Please join us to celebrate Midwives on Missions of Service (MOMS) on "The Streets of Sierra Leone" at the Gualala Arts Center in Gualala, CA, June 17, from 2:30 to 4:30.

There will be street food and drink, drumming, dancing, and displays to enjoy.

MOMS works in Sierra Leone to reduce maternal and infant mortality.

Since MOMS started work there in 2006, we have trained over 130 women in 35 villages to provide sound maternity care and to be change agents and teachers in their communities. The maternal and infant mortality rates have dropped by half; the government attributes these results in large part to MOMS' work.

Deacons Trish Ross and Chris McManus lead MOMS, and especially invite you to join the celebration and learn about the work.
