Zonta Provides Birthing Kits

RON/CONNIE ALLGIRE Published:

The Zonta Club of Defiance led an international service project to provide Birthing Kits. These kits help moms in developing nations by reducing infant mortality. Joyce Combs, Past Zonta District 5 Area 1 Director and member of the Zonta Club of Defiance, was instrumental in bringing speakers to the District 5 Zonta Conference on the partnership with The Defiance College's service program in Cambodia. Attendees to the conference made 1,100 Birthing Kits, some of which will go to Cambodia, as part of "Zontians Joining Our Strengths to Touch the World". Pictured from left are The Defiance College associate professors Dr. Fred Coulter and Dr. Joanne Burkhardt; Joyce Combs; and, Sreyroth Weaner, Zonta member and a former leader with the Cambodian Women's Crisis Center.
