The Shalom Christian Birthing Home invites you to join ACTION’s team, delivering hope among the neglected poor through evangelism, discipleship, and quality maternity care.

A Vision is Born

Shalom Christian Birthing Home was established by ACTION missionary, Mavis Orton, a retired nurse/midwife from England. Observing the exceptionally high maternal and infant mortality rates in the outskirts of Manila, Mavis opened her home to these at-risk mothers in order to provide a safe and dignified environment for childbirth. Nearby churches work closely with Shalom’s staff – resulting in many mothers and their families experiencing spiritual rebirth and becoming active in a local church.

ACTION missionary nurses, Cindy Gingerich and Pami Ellis joined Mavis in 2002 and 2011 respectively. After Mavis’ retirement in 2014, Cindy and Pami have assumed joint-leadership of this precious ministry.

Birth of a Team

In addition to missionary nurses Cindy and Pami, Shalom now has 20 full-time staff including midwives, nurses, chaplains, and janitors, in addition to many volunteers.

Growing Pangs

When the clinic first opened, eight babies were born a month, now approximately 60-100 babies are born each month. We would appreciate your help in funding our ongoing ministry.

Your financial gift will help with special projects and upkeep of Shalom’s facilities.
