Making Haitian Communities Better
As a grassroots NGO, Aid in Action might be limited by time and funding, but not by our passion and love for Haiti! Our projects are always evolving and growing to better fit the needs of the communities we serve. From midwifery and medical to construction and agriculture, we hope to make a lasting and sustainable impact.
Safer Births = Healthy Women & Children.
Training traditional midwives (Matrons) is one of the programs started in September of 2011 - helping to curb the infant and neonatal mortality of Haiti by teaching Matrons to use clean birth kids, basic sanitation, anatomy and other related topics. Ensuring that they know when to transport to the nearest hospital (not always near), and to provide the Matrons with necessary equipment. Midwives are the beacons of health and knowledge within their communities, and we aim to equip them with the tools they need to serve to the best of their abilities!
