Every year in sub-Saharan Africa, 162,000 mothers die needlessly because of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. That figure represents a staggering 56% of the global total. For an African woman, one of the most natural of events in a woman's life -- giving birth -- is also one of the most dangerous. As a result, each year close to 1 million African children are left motherless. Without transportation most women give birth at home or on the way to hospital, a journey on which too many will suffer fatal complications. Most of these babies will never receive a polio or malaria vaccine resulting in further spread of these deadly diseases. Our Mobile Clinics aim to bring simple medical procedures to villages in Africa, Asia, South and Central America.
