Support Medie's MPH Degree

Dear Friends of SAFE,

Many of you may know Mukalu Muhamed, (or Medie as he is affectionately known), SAFE's full-time Program Manager. Medie is responsible for the day-to-day execution, evaluation, and improvement of projects on the ground. He also facilitates our internship program, site visits, and other activities related to the complete functioning of the organization. Medie started out with SAFE first as a volunteer translator in 2008, then stepped into the role of full-time Program Manager in the summer of 2010.

Medie is one of the most dedicated maternal and child health advocates we have ever met, and we are thrilled to have him as part of the SAFE team. In true leader-like fashion, Medie would like to pursue his master’s degree, with a focus in maternal and child health, so that he can serve Ugandan communities even better. There is a program in Uganda called “Save the Mothers,” which will allow Medie to pursue his Master of Public Health Leadership with a focus in maternal and child health through Uganda Christian University. The program is specially designed for working professionals, and is structured into three 3-week modules per year for two years. 

SAFE would like to contribute to his education, as we know that he will return that contribution to Ugandan women and children ten-fold in the years to come. We invite you to join us in supporting Medie’s education, for the long-term development of maternal and child health in Uganda.

One semester's fees cost around $550, not including his school supplies and other pertinent costs. If you would like to contribute, please mail a check payable to Safe Mothers, Safe Babies with a note in the memo line that indicates its designation to Medie's school fees, to:

Safe Mothers, Safe Babies
P.O. Box 84 1516
Pearland, TX 77584

If you would like to make your contribution in honor of a loved one for the Holidays, please email and let us know to whom you'd like us to send an honor card in your behalf.

Thank you for your continued support!
