Success Story: Congolese Refugee Mother

by Katie Carroll | Aug 11, 2014

Peace was a young pregnant woman in trouble. Only 22-years old, she was a refugee of war, living in a camp in Southwest Uganda. Owning very little and living in tough conditions, she had very few options for safely delivering her baby. Not only that, Peace's child was in a breech position. There was no way she could have a natural birth.

Thanks to your generous gifts, Peace was able to deliver her baby safely through a Cesarean section at a health center at the refugee camp!

Peace is so grateful for your compassion. Full of vibrancy, she says, "I thank the Lord...thank you, because my child is safe and well."

Thank you for making a difference in the health & lives of refugee mothers & children around the world!
