Our goal this year is to raise $65,000 for the salary and training of 17
midwives for one year.
Making birth safe NOW and for the FUTURE deeply relies on skilled midwives. Midwives are the foundation of safe childbirth. Without safe childbirth, the future is uncertain.
Sierra Leone has a critical shortage of midwives due to over 11 years of Civil War, Ebola, and now Covid-19. The country has already lost 15% of their medical workforce and now they need about 3,700 midwives. Currently, they only have less than 500.
