Dear Friend of Kybele,

As 2014 draws to a close, we look back on our multitude of successes and people around the globe who have supported Kybele this past year.  It takes hundreds of hours of commitment on the part of volunteers, thousands of dollars of contributions from donors and participants, and countless experience from medical professionals to make a difference in the lives of women and children we serve.  We are proud of our accomplishments in 2014 and are happy to share them with you.

In 2014:
  • Kybele became a registered non-profit organization in Ghana.
  • Kybele received a $2.2 million multi-year grant from an organization in Seattle, Washington to further develop our program(s) in Ghana.
  • Kybele hired 3 new staff members in Ghana.
  • Kybele facilitated the development of National Guidelines for Obstetric Anesthesia Care published in Armenia and approved by the Ministry of Health.
  • A professional documentary about Kybele's work in Ghana, produced by graduate students of the Wake Forest University Documentary Film Program, made a world premiere in Toronto, Canada in May 2014 during a large international medical conference.
  • Kybele's work was published in 3 peer-reviewed medical journals. In addition to these publications, 3 book chapters are coming out in December 2014.
  • Kybele spearheaded the renovation of a critically needed NICU in Accra, Ghana that was funded by Kybele and a local bank.
  • Kybele entered into several important partnerships including Novant Health
    (providing $15,000 in annual program support), Breath of Life Foundation (providing essential equipment to the NICU in Ghana), and Health Volunteers Overseas (providing funds to send a doctor to Ghana for one month).
  • Kybele hosted 3 Ghanaian neonatal nurses at Duke University (NC) for a 3-week training session in neonatal intensive care.
  • Kybele held the 2nd bi-annual Team Leader Training Summit in Winston-Salem (NC) attended by medical professionals from across the US, Germany, and the UK.
  • Kybele had 60 traveling medical participants and conducted 5 program trips - Ghana (January, May, September), Serbia and Armenia - and 3 site visits to Ghana (February, March) and Romania/Moldova.
  • Kybele volunteers have now donated nearly $5 million in educational materials, textbooks, medication and equipment to host countries.
  • Due to growing interest in Serbia and surrounding countries, Kybele has now expanded the Serbia program to two full trips per year.
  • Kybele developed an extensive Triage Training Program - the first of its kind to be used in developing countries.

And we couldn't have done all this without the following
