Dear Family and Friends

     What an exiting and enriching opportunity Tom and I are looking forward to this summer!  We have accepted the challenge of climbing to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in an effort to raise funds for the non-profit organization, Healing Hands of Joy!

     Here in the US and accross the developed world, proper medical preventions and care for pregnant womin and their newborn babies is the norm, but in rural Etheopia this is not the case.  Each year in rural Etheopia 3,500 women experience obstetric fistula which includes a long and painful labor, the onset of incontinence and loss of babies life.  In addition to this divastating reality, these women and girls often face a life of isolation and abandonment by their husbands, families and bt the villages of which they were once a part of.  

     Since 2009, Healing Hands of Joy has been integratng prevention and treatment stategies for expectant mothers and others effected to, one day, fully eradicate obstentric fistula and empower survivers of obstetric fistula for self reliance and well being through the Safe Motherhood Ambassador Program.

     You are asssured that every dollar of your contribution will go directly to Healing Hands of Joy for their life changing work in Etheopia.  Tom and I will be funding our trip to the summit of Kilimanjaro and will share in the moment of fulfillment and beauty when we have ALL made a difference.  Thank your for your support!  

     Love, Marcy and Tom
