The Lives of Mothers


Mothers play a fundamental role in every culture. But depending on where a mom and baby live, they have a different chance of living or dying, suffering or thriving. In sub-Saharan Africa, one in 39 women will die of pregnancy-related complications, and one in nine children will die before age five. (In developed countries, the likelihood of dying drops to one in 4,700 women and one in 167 children.) Globally, 19,000 children die every day. The Rotary Foundation is working to improve maternal and child health around the world.

Our photo essay explores the Rotary projects that are saving new mothers and their children. Learn more about the challenges facing new mothers in the December 2013 issue of The Rotarian.
