Sunrider International donated more than half of the price of each ticket to its 2021 Grand Convention to benefit three separate nonprofit partners. One of these partners was Engage Now Africa, an international nonprofit that works with local and federal government agencies to offer aid, care and infrastructure. Through funds raised by Sunrider’s campaign, reaching $25,000, Engage Now Africa was able to construct a new maternity clinic which will now serve more than 30,000 women and children.
“The Wonber Maternal Health Center will be a very needed facility in this remote area in Ethiopia, because currently, women do not have a center to deliver their babies or receive prenatal and postnatal care,” said Diana Bingham, East Africa Director of Engage Now Africa. “Women are forced to deliver their baby in their home, often alone or with the help of a midwife.”
