In South Sudan, safe motherhood can never be taken for granted.
Letasha lives in Ezo County, one of the most remote and desolate places in South Sudan. It is also where Harvard-trained doctor and Board-certified obstetrician and gynecological surgeon Dr. Rachael Consoli was stationed as a CMMB volunteer at our CHAMPS site. Letasha had a difficult pregnancy and experienced symptoms that made her fear for her baby’s life. “CMMB provided me with medicine and a place in the hospital until I felt better and was able to go home.” With Dr. Consoli’s help, Letasha safely delivered a healthy newborn.
