Every Mother Counts presents: "Sedas Light"
Like many African countries, rural Malawi struggles to provide reliable electricity.
Like many African countries, rural Malawi struggles to provide reliable electricity, which poses special challenges to rural health clinics. Seda, a 25 year old nurse-midwife, is the only skilled birth attendant on staff in the maternity ward at Chakhaza Health Center in Dowa, Malawi. Only 1% of the rural population in Malawi is linked to the national electricity grid, and Seda, like many health care workers, struggles without power to make sure pregnant women can deliver safely, often times delivering in the dark. That's why Every Mother Counts is supporting We Care Solar by providing Chakhaza and 39 other rural health facilities in Malawi with solar powered 24/7 electricity.
