Field Highlight: Cyrus in Liberia

by Katie Carroll | Apr 23, 2014

Cyrus is a general Community Health Volunteer for Kebede Clinic in Sinoe County, Liberia.  A woman came to see him with a swollen nipple that had become infected after she gave birth and started breast feeding. He referred her to a clinic where she was treated with anti-biotics and was able to go home the same day to her family. If it had not been treated early, it could have grown more serious and endangered not only the mother’s life but the newborn baby’s as well.

Thank you for your support of our safe motherhood programs!  Because of you, health workers are receiving critical training to help women and children stay healthy.
