Helpful Knowledge Conveyed

A patient at one of AIL’s clinics tells this story: “I am 30 years old and I got married when I was sixteen; I have six children.  I did not understand what child spacing was and so my life and my family were negatively affected by this lack of knowledge.  One day I ran into a friend who noticed my poor health.  She referred me to AIL’s clinic to learn more about child spacing.  I went to the clinic and learned about health education regarding child spacing and I realized I should follow a child spacing program for my health.  I also requested that they give me a contraceptive injection.  After learning about child spacing I can take better care of myself and my family.  I want to thank the establisher of this clinic that has rescued me from these health difficulties.”
