We are finalists in "Grand Challenge"!!!

Fantastic news: The "Hope for the Babies" project, presented through the World Health Organization to the "Grand Challenge: saving lives at birth" has been chosen as a finalist! We have been invited to attend the Development Exchange, July 12-14, 2012, to participate in the final stage of the competition in Seattle, WA USA. If we win we can have funds to support the Afghan women knitters to make 15000 sweaters and hats for newborn babies and we can have money to do research to assess how this will increase the attendance at antenatal care and have more women to deliver with skilled birth attendant. We still need to continue to knit the sweaters in all corners of the earth as we have been doing because the needs are enormous and also we want to demostrate our solidarity that women everywhere want to support Afghan women and newborn babies.
