Save a mother's and infant's life in Sierra Leone

Since June 2016 we have safely welcomed over 200 babies at the Maternal Health Centre at the Judy Smith Health  Centre in Taiama, Sierra Leone! Sierra Leone has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world, with 1360 out of 100,000 women dying in childbirth. By providing pre and post natal care plus mid-wife attended births, we are beating this statistic! We are hoping to extend our program into 4 nearby villages, where women often deliver alone, or wait until too late to seek help when experiencing a difficult birth. We need one more mid-wife to go into the villages, and a motorbike to help her get there!
