Each year, many women die in childbirth in the Onura sub village. Virtually all these deaths are due to a lack of childbirth facilities and hemorrhages, which is a common cause of maternal mortality worldwide. Bleeding can be controlled in a clinic but, without one in Onura, it is a death sentence.
Our aim is to provide traditional midwives a childbirth delivery bed to save lives in a local post where most births and maternal deaths take place–well beyond the reach of hospitals and government health services.
