Destrezas Para Salvar Vidas "Skills to Save Lives"

Photos of the fundraiser for "Skills to Save Lives". This program attempts to respond to the need to reduce death and illness among women living in rural Nicaragua by introducing the role of the Mentor. The mentor is a nurse working out of the health center corresponding to the communities of the midwives/health workers in the Pilot Project.

“The health care system in Nicaragua has improved greatly, yet poor women continue to die as a result of preventable illness during pregnancy and giving birth. Our work assists those at the forefront of rural health care: Traditional Midwives and Community Health Workers” ~Dorothy Granada

Dorothy has worked for 25 years providing health care to women in rural Nicaragua. Her work has been recognized both nationally and  internationally. Among the awards received: • The International Pfeffer Peace Prize of the Fellowship of Reconciliation • Dr. Hugo Behm Award of the Central American Institute of international Health • Best Practices in Community Health of the World Health Council • The Order of Rubén Darío of the Government of Nicaragua
