Holiday Message 2012

As 2012 comes to a close I wanted to give you all an update on our progress and thank you for your continued support! It has been a very productive year and we are very excited about the prospects for Sabrina's Foundation in 2013!

The Foundation reached some important milestones in 2012 including: on-going follow-up from previous preceptorships, encouraging results from our expanded research project (pre-eclampsia), a broadening donor list, a new preceptorship for a very talented physician from India, and we are extremely excited to be participating in Women Deliver 2013 conference in Kuala Lumpur. We continue to have an anonymous donor cover all administrative costs of the Foundation, which enables our continuing promise that 100% of your donations go directly to research or education.

We are more excited with every year that goes by about the prospects for Sabrina's Foundation and our collective ability to radically change the global maternal mortality rates during childbirth. There are various angles on why research and education in this field is vital, but the simple numbers are overwhelming. Hundreds of thousands of mothers die during maternity annually, approximately one every minute or two. We have made a lot of progress over the past few years, but there remains much work to be done!

We are excited and hopeful that 2013 will be a great year for Sabrina's Foundation and mothers everywhere! The main points of focus for 2013 will be fund raising, expanding the preceptorship program, and our support for the Women Deliver 2013 conference.

Thank you for your generosity over the past few years, it has been humbling and invigorating for all of us! We hope that you will keep Sabrina's Foundation in mind as you continue your on-going philanthropy. Happy Holidays from all of us at Sabrina's Foundation!

Warmest Regards,

Kevin Dwan
