LifeReach International is the Mother and Newborn Healthcare (MNH) mercy ministry of YWAM El Paso-Juárez. Based in El Paso, Texas, we are strategically located right on the border of Mexico! LifeReach uses midwifery and healthcare education to impact communities, helping women to have safer births and healthier newborns. We are currently offering the following programs in several locations, coordinated through various missions and non-governmental organizations (NGO).
We are bringing answers to desperate global needs by training and placing childbirth educators, labour companions (doulas), and skilled birth attendants in areas were they can make a difference.
You can be trained and go to areas of need. You can send someone else by helping us train local women and healthcare providers. You can pray or send supplies and provisions.
Did you know that women all over the world die due to pregnancy related problems?
Did you know that every 60 seconds there is one mother who has given her life to the cause of reproduction?
Did you know that in that same time another 38 women suffered devastating injuries, such as fistulas and paralysis?
Did you know that many of those deaths were avoidable? Most of them happened in underdeveloped nations where access to care is limited, but many happened because women were undervalued in their society.
Did you know that in that same 60 seconds, 6 babies were born lifeless and 7 newborns died? The majority of these losses could have been preserved!
Did you know that you can make a difference in the lives of women and their babies?
