We have a had a great year training mothers in our “Well-Baby” program.  Cathee Mapes has been heading up our program since 2012 and is doing an amazing job!  Cathee knows just about everything there is to know about Primary Health Care, Nutrition, Backyard Gardening, Medical Emergencies, TB … ok a lot of things!  We have been blessed to have her work alongside us in bringing this very important training to the mothers in and around Tabuk.

In 2014 we hope to reach out even further with our Well-Baby program and train mothers in the mountains of Upper Tinglayan. This will mean hiking into remote villages as well as encountering a lot of traditional beliefs that may go against what we are teaching.  It is going to be an exciting year ahead!
