Liberia Success Story: Viola & Emmanuel

by Katie Carroll | Jul 22, 2014

Today we are so pleased to share with you a story of how your donations saved a baby boy's life. Thank you for your incredible generosity!

When 36-year old Viola living in Nitreen, the Traditional Trained Midwive (TTM) in Sinoe County, Liberia knew what to do. Thanks to you, she was trained by MTI to identify danger signs in pregnancy as part of our Safe Motherhood project. She saw that Viola was in trouble, and referred her to a local health facility. After eight hours of labor - and no progress - Viola's nurse transported her to a local hospital. There, she gave birth to her son Emmanuel. Thanks to you, both mother and child are doing well and able to go home!

Viola & Emmanuel

If Viola had not been referred to the health facility by the midwife that you trained - Viola and her son would almost certainly have died.


You are saving lives! Thank you!
