Warwick Birthing Kit Assembly Day 2014
17 May was birthing kit assembly day for Warwick Zontians and friends including students from WSHS and Scots PGC – 57 people in all making the job that much more fun and quick completing the task of packing the 1000 kits in an hour! From the newsletter:
“It was timely to receive email from Judith Anderson, District 22 Governor, earlier in May, with details of correspondence from Andrew Cameron OAM, Registered Nurse and Midwife, who thanked Zonta for distribution of birthing kits to Afghanistan in 2012. Andrew wrote that he and his field officer (pictured) ensured that their stock of birthing kits was distributed to midwives and traditional birth attendants in Kandahar, Helmand and Uruzgan. He wrote of the difference these kits make, and how appreciative the health staff and the women in these communities are to receive the kits to optimise safe, clean births.”
Thanks to everyone who supported the event, Scots PGC for providing the location and the Daily News for coverage!
