Global Initiatives


CIS contributing to the global community ...




A. Kosovo, Yugoslavia


The Canadian Nurses Association assisted in the reconstruction efforts in the largest labour and delivery unit in the capital city of Prishtina where 35-50 births occur daily.  The Nelson chapter of the RNABC approached the Cultural Interpretive Society to create Quilts of Hope to grace the bare grey cement walls of three of the ten birthing rooms.  The CIS donated three quilts as a symbol of hope, joy in the miracle of birth, and solidarity from nurse to nurse, mother to mother, woman to woman, and sister to sister as our links to nurses and birthing women in Kosovo.  These quilts send a message that labour and birth, joy, suffering and triumph are inextricably linked around the world.
