A crash course in changing the world.
A vibrant sun hangs in a blue sky hovering over a landscape of golden sand and palm trees. In a dusty makeshift hospital room and woman is giving birth. The walls are bare except for the cracks that line it. The dark a dank chamber invites mold nourished by the dripping pipes running across the ceiling.
The year is 2010 and the place is Afghanistan. This child will not live. Afghanistan currently has and Infant Mortality Rate of 121 per thousand live births. This is the worst Infant Mortality Rate ranking in the world. However it doesn't have to stay this way. Giving Global is developing a project to help Afghan mothers deliver their children safely. By 2020 I imagine that Afghanistan is not the best country to live as a mother however things are getting better. The IMR is decreasing and concerns of pregnancy complications are assuaged for the most part. Afghanistan is provided with an infrastructure of tools and technology that enable the country to make strides in creating a safer environment for women to give birth.
