Prosthetics Outreach - Sierra Leone


Quail Roost Foundation means so much to us! In a time when we least expected to receive a financial stimulus, our first gift from Quail Roost appeared in 2005. The assistance we have received each year from QR has provided funding for our postpartum home visiting program. Many thanks to Quail Roost Foundation; your concern for our community helps the Northern New Mexico Midwifery Center's outreach be successful.
