August’s Family Feature
By Brittany John – Health, Hunger and Education Program Manager
So far this year, from January to June, 868 babies were safely delivered into their mother’s arms at Mae Tao Clinic!
Each month this year we are introducing you to a new mother who safely delivered her newborn child at Mae Tao Clinic on the Thai/Burma border. In this region, infant and maternal mortality rates are far too high – 22 times higher than elsewhere. Thanks to your help, we are determined to improve access to prenatal care, safe labor and delivery, and postpartum care for new mothers and their babies. Here the reproductive health team safely deliver between 3 – 15 babies every day.
This month we’d like to introduce you to Mu Eh Lar, and her precious baby boy, Kyaw Eh Paw!
