Buy One Gift One helped Ester survive
For every MamaNatalie and MamaBirthie bought through Laerdal Medical in high-income countries, another one is donated to help save lives at birth.
After Ester gave birth, she was bleeding heavily. With the nearest hospital 6 hours away, Ester's life was in the hands of her midwife, Musama. He had trained in the Helping Mothers Survive with one of the donated MamaNatalies. He knew how to manage the bleeding and saved Ester's life.
Thank you, very much
