Meet us Halfway, 6th edition

We would like to gladly inform you that after a two-year break due to COVID-19 pandemic, we are organizing the 6th annual fundraising Gala ‘Meet Us Halfway’ in New York.
On behalf of the Trustees and Board of Action for Mothers and Children (AMC), it is our pleasure to invite you to our 6th annual fundraising Gala ‘Meet Us Halfway’ on October 21st, 2022 from 7:00 pm, at the Grand Ballroom of the Yale Club of New York City.
The Fundraising Reception hosted by AMC aims to raise philanthropic awareness for the much-needed funding of its health programs which aim to improve the healthcare system and save the lives of mothers and children in Kosovo.
On our 6th annual ‘Meet Us Halfway’, AMC commits to achieve these results during 2023:
• Provide essential, life-saving medication to about 400 premature babies;
• Provide over 3,000 women with Prenatal Vitamins, Amoxicillin, Spirals and other medicaments;
• Educate more than 2,000 parents on family planning, early pregnancy, delivery and post-partum period;
• Help 2,500 women diagnose Cervical Cancer through free Pap-smear testing in 2022;
• Provide health services through the Home Visiting Programme to more than 40,000 pregnant women and children 0-3 years old;
• Expand the Women Health Resource Centres in two more municipalities, 16 centres in total
AMC is committed to shrinking the disparities within the healthcare system that disproportionately burden women and children in Kosovo. With the support of our benevolent donors and partners, we were able to overcome many obstacles posed by the pandemic.
During the five years of organizing the event, the funds raised through the Meet us Halfway event have served the purpose to save many lives of babies thanks to the purchase of the medicaments and essential medical equipment that were lacking in our national hospitals.
Over the past years, we have reached several important milestones and are continuing to grow in impact thanks to the generosity of donors like you. Some of the key results include:
• The lives of more than 5,000 babies in Kosovo were saved thanks to the Surfactant medicament and the use of CPAP;
• Around 2,000 babies have used the Oxygen System and CRP so far;
• Incubators are used by more than 4,000 babies;
• We have opened 14 Women’s Health Information Centers ‘Classes for Mothers’ which have benefited more than 10,000 pregnant women and parents so far;
• About 11,000 women and girls have benefited from our Cervical Cancer Screening Program
• Medical equipment and medications worth more than € 3,000,000 were donated to the Neonatology and Pediatrics Clinic and other healthcare institutions in Kosovo;
Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dancing and networking will be part of the event, as well as other surprises to be presented at the reception.

We hope to see you there!
