Help Support Healing Hands of Joy

Healing Hands of Joy looks to the future with goals to expand the program across rural Ethiopia while providing a range of options to empower women in their communities and provide safe delivery. Please help us continue our work to make Motherhood Safer in Ethiopia.

Sponsor a Safe Motherhood Ambassador

One by one we can support the dreams of these women and help them become independent and valued members of their communities.  Support Healing Hands of Joy today to help the Ethiopian Women who have suffered this horrific childbirth injury reclaim their lives and help prevent others from experiencing the same horror.
