Casa Compasiva – April 2021 Update
Casa Compasiva (Compassion House) is a Christian Birthing Center in Oaxaca, Mexico that provides a safe and caring environment for young mothers and their new children. Established in 2010, Casa Compasiva is growing and impacting a culture where c-sections are the norm for the birthing experience.
This year, Casa Compasiva celebrated its 10th year of serving families in their surrounding communities with prenatal, child birth, and postpartum care and education. With the regulations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Mexico, the demand for midwives and birthing centers has risen. Yet, as these numbers increase, so do the challenges and needs of Casa Compasiva.

Emergency Funds Needed at Casa Compasiva
At the beginning of April, MVC launched an emergency campaign to update cleaning & security facilities. With a generous donner’s offer to match up to $4,000 CAD, we can proudly announce that we have surpassed our goal and raised $4602. With the matching gift, that’s a grand total of $8,602 CAD! Thank You!
However, Casa Compasiva continues to have great financial needs to meet their operational costs; wages, equipment, training, gospel outreach, and a financial aid program for families unable to afford the cost of their care. Through the connection of Sarah Therese and her YouTube Platform, we have made the connection with a wonderful American jewelry company, Wind Blown Jewelry, willing to raise more funds to support the needs of Casa Compasiva.
