Saving Lives one Baby at a Time

I feel very lucky to have been part of the "NRT" (Neo Natal Resuscitation Training) group training Sunyani and Kamasi region . My parent have been telling me about these trainings for the past few years but until you are there you can not imagine the joy. I had gone in place of my mother to be an assistant to my dad this trip. Many times I was speechless as I watched the training. Hundreds of babies will be saved with this simple skill. Hundreds of Midwives received empowerment during this training. Hundreds of Mothers will weep with joy as they hold their sleeping newborn child.
I am so grateful to have been part of this program directed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our Heavenly Father has a plan for us. Today part of this plan was to help midwives in Ghana know how to save the lives of his new born children.

Me, Cathyrn, and Mary. Guess Cathyrn didn't get the {Pink Shirt} memo!
My dad was constantly entering registrations, test results, making certificates, ect. I almost always knew where to find him!

Here is a group assembling individual packets for each midwife. We also assembled large training packets for each district.

There were times I was stumped at the difficutly others had in following instruction! As long as it got done I guess it is fine!

You already know how amazing I think this is! What an experience. And I'm sure the people there will benefit more than you know! If your dad is ever looking for another assistant-just let me know!!
