Mission of Mujeres Aliadas
Mujeres Aliadas advances the lives of poor women and adolescent girls in the Lake Pátzcuaro area of Michoacán, México, through the provision of health and educational services in partnership with the community and in a manner that enhances the dignity of women, with an emphasis on an integration of traditional and occidental health and educational modalities.
Mujeres Aliadas is requesting $41,350 to support the rural midwife project at a clinic for one year. Any donations over that amount will go toward medical equipment, clinic remodeling, transportation and patient support. DFW's donations will help reduce maternal and infant mortality by supporting professional midwives and equipment in the women’s clinic.
