Expectant mothers in Ethiopia can go their entire pregnancies and labor without obstetric care, resulting in one of the highest rates of birth-related injuries and death in the world. Fistulas are overwhelmingly common; but rather than receiving the maternity services they need, women are often shunned and forced into isolation. The emotional and physical effects are devastating. Our safe motherhood ambassadors in Ethiopia are working to ensure ostracized mothers have the care, community, and education they need to regain their confidence and lead healthy lives once again. In addition to this support, every woman is given the opportunity to pursue vocational training. When you give to this initiative, you empower women and protect the next generation against stigma.
