THE STORY:

Midwives like Babirye Monic and Pulkeria from Uganda work overtime to care for every mom-to-be, despite high caseloads, long hours and low wages. Their colleague Jennifer Twikirize explains why: “Like 1 in 22 African women, my mother died due to poor care during her 13th delivery. I was inspired to be a midwife to save pregnant mothers." With a severe shortage of doctors across Africa, midwives are key to reducing maternal and infant mortality and mother-to-child HIV transmission.

$35 supports a midwife for one week in Uganda!
