My name is Georgia Gilliland Macad.
My family and I work with the tribal peoples of Kalinga, a remote area in the northern Philippines. This isolated area plagued with tribal wars is one of the most beautiful and untouched areas in the Philippines. Because of their isolation, the people living in this area have little to no access to medical care. Most of the pregnant women will deliver their babies at home on their own, without any prior prenatal care or attending doctor or midwife. Many of these women and babies die due to complications that would have been easily preventable with adequate care from a qualified midwife.
I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and have spent a great deal of time over the last 9 years with the tribal peoples of Kalinga. Because of my love for the people as well as the obvious need, I decided to move permanently to Kalinga and set up a maternity clinic to provide Midwifery care to the tribal peoples in and around the capitol city of Tabuk as well as into the remote mountains of Kalinga.
The Philippines is a developing nation with extreme poverty and corruption and so, I am seeking to find sponsors from outside the country that would be interested in partnering with me for this cause.
I and the people of Kalinga would be so grateful if you would be interested in supporting this charity maternity clinic through the donation of medical supplies or financial support.
