Marabel is pregnant and due any day now! Marabel and her husband are both farmers and together have seven children to provide for. Like most mothers, she wants only the best for her children.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, 1 in 39 women will likely die in childbirth. The region also has the highest risk of death for newborns in their first month of life. Lwala Community Alliance can provide Marabel with essential healthcare that will change those odds in her favor. $215 will cover clinical antenatal care, several home visits, a hospital delivery and a post-birth checkup.
Marabel recently shared her hopes for the future: “I hope to stay well and to educate my children for a better future.” The first step is a healthy pregnancy and safe childbirth.
