Giving-Day 8

Today I donated money to help theMother & Child Health Clinic in Rural Nepal. This project supports one year's operating expenses for the Karing for Kids Mother and Child Health Clinic, serving 7,000 people in the rural mountain communities of Rasuwa district, Nepal. I was able to give 5 days' operating costs for the Clinic OR a year's worth of care for 12 women and children. I'm shocked that such a small amount of money can give an entire year of care to 12 women. How is that possible when I spend $15 co-pay just to have my child go to the pediatrician once here? It makes me wonder what we are doing wrong here.

I donated this in honor of someone close to my heart for a place they hold close to theirs.
