This is Loy. She is a midwife in Tahoy District. She was trained to use and distribute Clean Birth Kits by one of our nurses in September 2013. She talked to CleanBirth.org’s volunteer, Natalie about her experience with the kits:
“My name is Loy. I am a midwife in the village. I help the mothers during pregnancy and when they give birth. I have been a midwife for two years. After the training by the nurse in September, I helped two mothers give birth. After using the kit, the mother and child are clean. It’s convenient and easy to use. We need more kits. Without the kits, the mother and child get infection and get sick.”
This year CleanBirth.org’s crowd funding campaign will be working toward training more women like Loy and getting them birth kits. Our goal is to give local women the knowledge and supplies needed to make birth safer for their neighbors.
