I chose the story about the shortage of midwives. This article is saying that every day 1,000 women and 5,500 newborns are dying because there is not enough medical care.
The organization “UNFPA” tries to fight against this. They call for investments in midwives programs. And they want to join the Triennial Midwives Congress in June in South Africa.
I found a website about midwives in poor countries: http://www.birth-and-culture.com/de/video/video_2_bescheib***.htm
. 23 midwives from 17 countries are talking about their stories. Being a midwife in a poor country is not always easy. It can be deflating and sometimes a lot of things for a comfortable birth are missing.
The midwives of this website hope that the can fight female circ**cision.
The organization “Ärzte ohne Grenzen” is always looking for midwives who are ambitious enough to go to those poor countries: http://www.aerzte-ohne-grenzen.de/mitarbeiten/mitarbeiten-im-projek...
I think the article could inform about that project, too. Like that midwives who are reading this article and are ambitious enough to go to a poor country can easily help.
