Donating To Stella Marina
Thank You for considering making a donation to Stella Marina. Join us in solving the challenge in Haiti to improve the birthing process for the women to make delivery, clean and safe. According to a Save the Children 2010 paper titled "Clean Birth Kits - Potential to Deliver?", "(F)or centuries, a clean birth has been recognized as essential to the health and survival of both mothers and newborns. Nevertheless, each year an estimated 1 million newborns and mothers will die from infections soon after birth." What is even more shocking is that to provide a woman a clean, safe delivery costs less than $2, less than a cup of coffee.
If you would like to make a donation, you may send a check addressed to

Please add Stella Marina to the memo section of the check to ensure that it is allocated to our group.
Thank You and May God Bless You
