"We want the moms to have prematal care because so many of them will deliver at home with a midwife at home. We had moms that came in with infections, we had a mom that came in and her baby had died. And we knew that education and prenatal care was an important component of it," Purple Slip Director Kay McInnes said.
Project Humanity volunteers provide medical care and teach residents how to use their resources to lead better and healthier lives. The trips are taken six times a year and are open to anyone, of any profession, who wants to help.
"After I went there these kids and these people they love you unconditionally and you feel like a rockstar there because they love you so much. And the only reason they love you so much is because you care enough to come and try to make their lives better," Volunteer Adam Sauceda said.
Beginning April 7th through May 9th, the Purple Slip Campaign and Project Humanity will launch "Mothers Helping Mothers". The organization asks Moms to clean out their closets and donate gently used baby clothes and cloth diapers to be taken to Kenya.
