Women Deliver Conference Malaysia 2013

Women Deliver Conference Malaysia 2013

Help make our future endeavors as midwives abroad successful and send

me to the Women Deliver Conference in Malaysia May 2013!

MAKE MIDWIVES MATTER! The World can’t wait! Now is the time to invest
in Girls & Women! Support the changes needed in the Care of Women &
Girls Globally! Sponsor my attendance to the Women Deliver Conference
in Malaysia in May of 2013. My attendance as well as the presence of
our organization Lhasa Foundation at this forum is an opportunity to
make Global network connections in the fields of Women’s Health and
Midwifery and will prove to be a crucial element in the success of the
Birth Center we will build abroad in 2015-16

I am also registered for The 2 day Midwifery Symposium preceding

the conference which will bring together some 200 midwives, policy
makers, programme managers and senior representatives from UN
agencies, major international NGOs, and donors.The discussions will
focus on demonstrating major strides made towards strengthening
midwifery in recent years at national and global levels and discuss
how best to address ongoing challenges in improving access,
availability, accessibility and quality of  services  emerging from
the latest evidence base using partnerships and innovative
technologies as key strategies.
I have a formal invitation/letter of acceptance to attend the
Symposium upon request
The funding required is $3000 USD  for: R/T airfare from Denver to
Malaysia, event registration fees as well as  ground expenses in Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysia for the duration of the 11 day trip~ This will be
made possible by Donations from You the community & may be offered via
paypal.com using my email address kelly@lhasafoundation.org Any surplus in
donations will go toward the concurrent campaign for our year in
Uganda finishing our midwifery studies for CPM certification in 2015.
ALL Support, Sponsorship, Donations, Love, Gratitude and Care are
received as Love & go forth in Service of the Sacred Blessing of
Dignified and Gentle Birth, as perhaps many of the ills in our
societies today are rooted in it’s opposite. As a collective Humanity,
we are all responsible for one another & it is in loving service to
each other that we discover the wealth of true happiness~
Blessings, Love and ALOHA to ALL
Thank You Kindly for your time

Lower Maternal Mortality rates by Supporting a Student Midwife

Posted in HOME at 11:55 am by admin

Lhasa Foundation’s Co-Founder Kelly Michelle Roske is raising Maternal Health awareness & funds for her continued Midwifery Education to take place in Uganda .  High Global Maternal Mortality rates are the product of of ignorance coupled with a lack of proper distribution of resources and skilled care providers. 99% of maternal deaths take place in rural under served areas where adequate maternal health care isn’t accessible nor provided. Of the women who do survive 2 out of 10 are left permanently disabled. The UNFPA states we need 350,000 midwives to offset these high numbers.  Lowering Maternal Mortality rates is one of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals set in 2000 to be achieved by 2015. Although we have seen a reduction in Maternal mortality the proposed goal will not be met on time. Upon certification Kelly will collaborate with similar organizations with the same mission to lower these rates and construct Superadobe Birth Centers in rural regions where there is limited or no access to adequate care. She will also educate and learn from the local traditional midwives while teaching life saving skills and training prospective local midwives from villages in the region. Please Support her campaign so we can make a difference in the lives of these women and their families. What would You do to Save Your Mother, Sister or Daughter? What would you do if you couldn’t…?

~ THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR GENEROUS COMMENTS ~

Lhasa Foundation is currently based in San Blas Mexico in the state of Nayarit. We are beyond blessed to be here in beautiful tropics and very enthusiastic to support the community in building Superadobes. We had a flood and two apx 5.0 earthquakes in the summer of 2010 and after witnessing the damage done by both (minor cracks from the earthquakes to collapsed walls of the standard box frame concrete brick structures common here in Mexico from the flood) it is clear that we all would benefit from the durability and security of building with Superadobe with added aesthetic bonus of the fluid round shapes so admired in domes. I have posted pictures of the Earthbag Roundhouse in Thailand as it is a quaint example of what can be built here in Sayulita and most represents the style desired. Most people here will require more living space, the nature of Superadobe provides endless design options, all fluid and in harmony with nature~ The opportunities are amazing and infinite! We look forward to hearing from you and can be contacted by email  via connect@lhasafoundation.org.

The Earthbag Roundhouse in Thailand

Super Adobe !~!~ What an amazing concept! Nader Khalili’s blend of Rumi & Architecture founded this low cost, environmentally sustainable building technology using our primary elements of Earth, Air, Fire & Water. Originally founded on the idea that these ‘materials of war’ (feed/grain bags & barbed wire & cement) can be found virtually anywhere on the globe. These Super ‘Domes’ can be made into an emergency shelter in the event the ‘mother storm’ is rolling in or afterward to provide shelter in refugee camps and finally can be constructed into Beautiful Low cost homes or villages for extreme permanency !!! How does it work? Harvest the earth up from under your feet and mix with a small amount of cement & water and pack into short polypropylene bags or the wondrous ‘long bag roll’ from Cal-Earth. Barbed wire acts as a dry mortar in between the bag rolls and they are coiled up in accordance to the measurement of the simple 2 compass system there by forming a Beautiful monolithic structures that can then be plastered inside and out with the same earth blend used to fill the bags. These structures can withstand extremely high winds, floods, fires & earthquakes! Absolutely Gorgeous !~
