Birthing Kit Project
Preparation for D12 Conference
Members of the Boulder Zonta Foothills Club took time from their busy
summers to help cut 3,000 strings needed for the assemblying of birthing
kits at the District 12 Conference in Denver at the end of October. One
thousand birthing kits will be assembled by those Zontians attending the
Conference and will be sent to Africa to help mothers have clean births.
The kits contain scalpels, strings to tie off the umbilical cords, latex
gloves, a drop cloth for delivery on, soap bars and gauze.
following the cutting are Ann Hodgson, Barb Lawson, Michelle Medal, Wynne
Simpson and Tommie Atanasoff.
