„A pregnant woman …

… stands with one foot on the ground and with one foot

in the grave.”

(African proverb)

When life begins with dying

In 2000, the UN formulated eight goals to reduce extreme poverty and hunger in the world by 2015 [1].

These include, among others:

  • Improving maternal health care
  • Reduction of child mortality

Since then, the situation in Burkina Faso has improved, but in rural areas the situation still is devastating. In the Ouarégou region, there is not a single hospital far and wide. We want to change that by building a maternity ward.
