“Since Africare provided us with Mama Kits, maternal health has been improved because the Mama Kits encourage women to come to the clinic for delivery. A lot of the women who would have complications from delivery at home are now able to get care at the clinic. We did nine deliveries last week!”

 

- Mary Tennie, Certified Midwife at Salala Clinic
