Spring is a time for new life and new hope — and CNEWA is helping to bring both to women and children in need.

No baby should ever die because her mother cannot afford a safe birth. No mother should ever have to suffer that pain. One of the most pressing needs in the places we serve is medical care — especially for pregnant women and for newborns during the first hopeful-yet-vulnerable months of their precious young lives.

That is why our CNEWA family supports mother-and-child health clinics such as the Mother of Mercy Clinic in Zerqa, Jordan, and the Little Sisters of Nazareth Baby Care Center, which serves Christian Palestinian refugees in Dbayeh, Lebanon.

Thanks to prayers and generous donations, in 2012 the doctors and nurses at these two clinics were able to serve mothers and young children to the fullest. Here are just five of their successes:

  • Delivered over 1,000 healthy newborns

  • Provided 15,000 newborns and young children with free physicals and vaccinations

  • Gave free gynecological exams for any pregnant woman seeking care from our clinics

  • Screened every pregnant mother for vitamin and nutrient deficiencies and gave necessary supplements and dietary information

  • Purchased two new sonar machines that doubled the number of ultrasounds performed in a year

If you believe every baby deserves a safe birth, please make a generous donation today to CNEWA. You will help us to help others — and continue to bring forth a new springtime of life and hope for so many. God bless you and your family!
