Mother to Mother: Village Care Groups Save Lives in Sierra Leone
The maternal mortality rate is higher in Sierra Leone than anywhere else in the world: One in 17 women won’t survive pregnancy or delivery. The majority of these deaths are a result of preventable causes, exposing a critical lack of information and skilled care. The fact that most of these deaths could have been avoided is a tragedy, but it also means that all hope isn’t lost — that there’s work that can be done to save lives in the future.
