Since 2010, Thea Van Rumst has been supporting the Pumwani Maternity Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya, a hospital on the edge of the slums where yearly 30,000 women give birth in the most abominable circumstances. Every year she spends her holidays working there as a voluntary midwife in the labour ward. Now she started a project to raise funds to improve the working conditions for the midwives and to give pregnant women the opportunity to give birth in a safe and comfortable way.
On Sunday 17 August 2014 Thea is taking part in the Mr. T. Ladies Triathlon in Ghent. Sponsoring money will go to the Pumwani Marternity Hospital project.
You can help by:
-liking and sharing Thea’s facebook page
-providing financial support through the website: http://vroedvrouwtegenmoedersterfte.be/
Companies that support the project financially will receive a fiscal certificate and will be posted on the website.
