What we do

Outreach Starts in the Local Community

The first mission field is your local community. Season of Hope reaches those that need it in our local community, meeting physical, spiritual, and emotional needs with compassionate and respectful maternity care, food services, educational classes, counseling and housing as needed. Our staff and volunteers incorporate any and all resources available, such as prayer, evidence-based midwifery care, birth services, food pantries, and more, all as God leads.

Season of Hope, reaching the communities that need it most.

The inspiration of a birth center in Mali came out of the work we have been doing in Haiti with the Birth center MamaBaby Haiti over the last several years.

Midwife Khamissa (a founding member of Season of Hope) grew up in this beautiful land of her ancestors. Her family has always been close to African traditions and the very inclusive type of family care in west Africa.

Over the years since she left Mali, she has remained in close touch with all my family members, my friends, and acquaintances there. That is how she is so aware of the socio-economic problems that are still so very present, especially surrounding women’s health.

After practicing Midwifery for over 20 years in Germany where Khamissa had the chance to meet and work with some wonderful colleagues and 6 years of working in the United States practicing out of hospital deliveries, she felt the desire to continue this important work in my own community.

We cannot thank you enough for the moral, emotional, and financial support that each one of you is willing to put into the realization of this project.

Our short-term goal is to collaborate with the existing medical facilities, be a support to them, practice locally, improve prenatal education, postpartum support as well as reflect on how our way of practice can complement their processes.

Our long-term goal is to have a facility on our own that can be managed through medical personnel on the ground.

We want to make this accessible to all our colleagues abroad to travel and support those pregnant moms, while practicing at the local birth center.

We want to collaborate with the Midwifery institutions in place and have locally trained Midwives running the birth center while we are in our respective countries.

Another long-term goal is to give the opportunity to student midwives across the world to come and practice with us, either for an internship or getting some work experience abroad. 

Our upcoming trip to Mali

Our first step is our upcoming trip in April 2023 to connect with local communities, the Ministry of Labor, and private and governmental clinics that are practicing Obstetric and deliveries. Our number one priority is creating a network with health care centers that are regional.

We are quickly approaching a new phase of the Mali project.

We are meeting with the Midwife Alliance in Mali to learn about their standard of practices, laws related to health care, and rules under which locally trained midwives are trained and practicing on a daily basis. We also want to hear about challenges in the selection of Midwives students as well as those already practicing in the field. 

We are meeting with administrative people responsible for representing the vision of the medical center/ Birth center we are planning on starting.
