Women and Children First Trustee John Davis visited the Malga District to see some of the women’s health groups in action. He was “awe-inspired” by how the groups set out to enact change and save lives. You can watch his interview below.
In this video, John notes how much the groups have learned about family planning, danger signs in pregnancy, and improving nutrition.
He says "This project has helped tens of thousands of people, educating them in a way that has left the community in such a better place around maternal and newborn health."
John also talks about the sustainability of the groups. It is expected that over 80% of the women’s health groups will be self-sustainable, continuing to meet together after Women and Children First finish their work in the District.
The success of these Women’s Health Groups would not have been possible if not thanks to our generous donors and supporters. Thank you.
