Milestone Objective

Four years ago, Edna Adan, founder of the Edna Adan Maternity Hospital in Somaliland, announced an ambitious dream to Connecther supporters. She wanted to train 1,000 midwives to work in remote regions of the country, providing quality healthcare in a country with one of the world's highest maternity mortality rates. You believed in her dream! Thanks to you, we have donated $18,000 to this project to date. In October 2017, another 76 young women graduated – bringing the total number of trained midwives to 425. To date, our family of donors has funded the training of 83 midwives, who are saving the lives of mothers and babies. With your help, Edna is almost halfway toward achieving a dream that some thought was impossible.

Milestone Objective

Thank you to our supporters for funding this project to Train 1000 Midwives! Your support is helping to reduce the maternal and infant mortality rate in Somaliland!

Somaliland, a region of Somalia that lay in ruin from years of war, suffers some of the world's highest rates of infant and maternal mortality. But 15 years ago, Edna Adan fulfilled a lifelong dream by building a nonprofit hospital and nursing school to address the health needs of women. Special correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro reports.

On October the 19th, 2013, Connecther hosted it's first annual Banquet in Austin, Tx at the Four Seasons hotel.  The keynote speaker was Edna Adan. At the Banquet, Toyota presented the "Women impact the world" Award to Edna Adan along with $2,500. We are very appreciative to Toyota for it's generous award. We are also very grateful to our Connecther donors.  Thanks to our donors, we were able to present Edna Adan with a check of $10,000. Thank you for your continous support!
