Many thanks to Anna and Sheila!  Sheila was able to volunteer with Dar a Luz for 5 days, during which she really made a difference in the hospital by providing support for many women.

Also Sheila and Anna assisted with a childbirth education workshop.  Sheila helped to create a good, warm and welcoming atmosphere, and Anna took part in teaching the workshop.

Anna collaborated with Dar a Luz for two weeks. She also spent Christmas Eve ate the hospital to be a wonderful doula for a lot of women. Anna  brought many donations for the project, including much needed gloves, blood pressure cuffs, and other needed supplies. Thanks to Sheila and Anna for being such wonderful doulas and for all the work you are doing!

Thank you  to Maria Charbula and Nadine Hartl very much for their time and contributions.  Maria and Nadine are midwifery students from Austria, they came in the beginning of January and spent 5 weeks with Dar a Luz Honduras. Mainly Maria and Nadine volunteered in the hospital by assisting the women during their labour, delivery and afterwards by showing them compassion, employing a variety of comfort measures. They also cared for babies in the Neonatal Unit.  Maria and Nadine participated in many other Dar a Luz initiatives such as a childbirth education workshop in La Ceiba, and a meeting with traditional midwives in a remote mountain village.  Maria graciously donated her sewing skills, and Nadine her time, to make curtains from the materials bought by Dar a Luz for the hospital in Tela.  There often six or more women labor together in one room, so these curtains will provide some privacy.

Maria and Nadine have been wonderful help with their positivity, skills, and knowledge.  We truly appreciate everything they have done.
