In Somaliland, 1-in-12 women die in childbirth. In the aftermath of civil war, with the country’s healthcare system in ruins, Edna Adan Ismail built a maternity hospital out of the rubble, determined to reduce the unacceptably high maternal mortality rate of Somali women.
Among the women she has been able to reach, Edna has reduced the maternal mortality rate by an astounding 75%. But many more women need her help, and Edna has set a goal to train and deploy 1,000 midwives across the country. $4,200 trains one midwife. Help her reach her goal.
