As an anniversary gift, I brought the midwives bracelets!
All over the world, women are denied their fundamental reproductive rights. From a lack of basic health check-ups to scarce family planning services, this is the reality too many women face. 

In places where we work — in Jordan with Syrian refugees, in Guatemala, Haiti, Kenya and beyond — our sisters are working hard to overcome these barriers to reproductive health for themselves, for their daughters and for their communities.
 
Our sister organization Midwives for Peace is a prime example of this vital work. A network of Israeli and Palestinian midwives, they work together, despite the conflict, driven by their shared belief that every mother deserves a joyful experience of childbirth and every baby deserves to grow up in peace.
 
Midwives for Peace collaborate to build their midwifery skills and share techniques that save the lives of mothers and babies.
 
This amazing group is celebrating their five-year anniversary!
 
We want to show Midwives for Peace just how much we value the important work they do. I hope you’ll join us by signing your name on to the anniversary message below.
 
Warmly,
Yifat Susskind
MADRE Executive Director

To our sisters at Midwives for Peace,
 
Happy five-year anniversary!
 
We celebrate your dedication to working together for mothers and for peace. In just five short years, you have helped reduce maternal and infant mortality and expand women's access to family planning in the West Bank. And your bond of friendship, despite the conflict that surrounds you, is truly inspiring!
 
Wishing you another successful five years - and many more.
 
Happy Anniversary!
