MOTHERCARE
Impacting Generations

Pregnancy and birth should be a time of joy and anticipation, but women and children in sub-Saharan Africa face some of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the world. WOW builds maternal support networks in areas where many new mothers do not have access to pre and post-natal care. By empowering mothers with healthcare, education and spiritual support, a new generation of healthy families is made possible.

“My fifth baby was the healthiest ever! I received nutritional training, vitamins, and could go to the clinic because of the provided transportation. Today, my son is a healthy, happy two-month-old!”
