Meet Linet, a 24-year-old mother of three from Kenya! Linet and her husband are working hard to save money as they expect their fourth child. However, Linet has been experiencing abdominal, back, and head pains that are unlike those from her previous pregnancies. As a result, she has been unable to farm, save the money she needs for a safe delivery, and care for her children.

Despite Linet and her husband’s hard work, she worries that she will not be able to afford the healthcare services to ensure a safe delivery. She says, “I wish and pray to get a better healthcare services in a health facility. Even though I am aware that I cannot afford it, that is my greatest wish.”

For $215, Linet will receive a safe delivery in a health facility under the supervision of attending nurses. Both mother and baby will be offered advanced medical care as needed in order to ensure a happy, healthy life for the two. Let’s help Linet deliver her child safely and give her baby a healthy start to life!
