Bree and Brydies
Bree and Brydie are 2 volunteer midwives who worked at Dareda
We felt compelled to raise money for Maternity Africa after hearing about the good work they are doing. We had also committed to volunteering as midwives in Tanzania in 2016. We hoped to use this opportunity to inform our community on the disparity of maternal health world-wide, and get them on board. We spent some time brain storming a few fundraising ideas and researching our target audience. Working in a big hospital, we knew a cake stall would be a hit.
We received help from colleagues, family, friends, even strangers. We were astounded at the reception we received and weren’t prepared for everyone’s generosity. We were told it was a record breaking cake stall for our hospital and we were thankful to have raised just over $2 000 for Maternity Africa. ”
