Two Questions for Dr. Anne Marie Keus at Masanga

18. December, 2011
About motivation, privileged people complaining, and saving lives.

Serious birth complications are part of the everyday challenges at the Masanga Hospital, says Dr. Anne Marie Keus, who has worked at the hospital for two years. In this brief excerpt she answers two important questions about her motivation as a doctor and secondly about the special operations performed at the Masanga Hospital for women in difficult delivery. Help Every Day is supporting The Masanga Hospital by financing 20 ceasaeran section operations.

So many women in this country die in relation to giving birth – in fact Sierra Leone has one of the highest maternal and infant mortality percentages in the world. Why is that?

Well first of all a lot of women choose to give birth at home, which is often due to a cultural thing saying that women should be able to give birth at home without any problems. Secondly, the infrastructure in the health care system is both slow and extre... (Read more)

Article in Lokalavisen Århus

24. November, 2011

We recently hit the local newspaper of Århus, Denmark's second largest city. The article was short, precise and optimistic as it focused on the method of Coins of Compassion:

"You don't get a happy marrige by simply remembering your annivesary and you don't get in super shape by running one time every year. As with relationships and fittness, we're trying to turn generosity into a consistent every day thing".

Another main focus was the way Help Every Day looks at change and how to initiate large change processes:
"In our time there's so much focus on YOU and how YOU can change the world. We're turning that picture into a big WE instead."

We're on TV!

Air time on national TV prime time interview

Just three weeks after launching we caught the attention of National Danish Television. With no advertising budget what so ever, we’ve quickly managed to spread the word through friends, Facebook and word of mouth, and soon it ended up becoming a prime time interview on the Danish Broadcasting Corporation.

You can watch the interview right here:

 (it's in danish and no subtitles yet)

Our founder, Matias Ignatius Nielsen, was interviewed alongside Robert Hinnerskov, the General Secretary of ISOBRO (the Association of Danish Charity Organizations) and the overall feeling of the interview was extremely optimistic on behalf of charity organizations. Danes have increased their will to donate to charity over the last five years – even despite recent years’ global economic crisis.

Matias talked about the philo... (Read more)
