Palestinian and Israeli midwives come together for professional development
Posted on: Friday, February 19, 2010
MADRE's partners in Palestine, Midwives for Peace, hosted their first co-existence meeting of 2010 earlier this week. Midwives and health practitioners from both Palestine and Israel gathered for a professional development meeting as well as to share personal stories about political and social difficulties they face in their work.
During the meeting, midwives from the Maythaloon Birthing Center also received the donation that MADRE sent for the midwives' supplies and salaries and for the general upkeep of the birthing center. The midwives from Maythaloon, the West Bank's only birthing center, send their thanks to all the generous MADRE members who have made our partnership with Midwives for Peace possible.
