This fall we have the privilege of working with an old friend: WINGS Guatemala, provider of contraception and cervical-cancer screening to low-income Guatemalan women. Family planning hugely improves family health, education, and economic stability.
Meet Lucy. When she first decided she wanted to use birth control, she faced fierce opposition from her partner and future mother-in-law. Lucy persisted and prevailed. Today she has two children, ages 4 and 8, and works as a Volunteer Health Promoter with WINGS. She provides education and short-acting contraceptive methods to women in her community. The majority of Lucy’s patients are female farm workers who work from dawn to dusk, so Lucy attends them at night. Over the years, she has treated 459 patients. Rock star.
Mundito will help WINGS expand their mobile clinical services (now two vehicles, soon three) to reach rural areas of Guatemala where family-planning services are hard to come by. We are proud to support this organization that achieves stunning results with a limited budget: services provided this year will have a total lifespan impact of averting 11,260 unintended pregnancies. In addition, they expect to provide 4,480 women with cervical cancer screening. (Cervical cancer is the #1 cancer among women in Guatemala due to a high rate of HPV infection.)
We’re targeting a grant of $56,000 to help expand WINGS services to include a third mobile clinic. We’ll be counting on you, our generous donors, to cover $28,000 of the cost. As always, if your donations exceed our target, the additional funds are used to increase the total grant to WINGS.
