Project #8859

Transportation so a mom can deliver baby safely

by Riders for Health
Sep 27, 2012

Final report

With your help, we have been working in cooperation with Zimbabwe's Minister of Health to recover from the economic crisis and re-scale our operations there and get health care into communities be re-mobilizing Environmental Health Technicians (EHT) throughout the country. 

While this specific project, "transportation so a mom can deliver a baby safely," and partnership with Million Moms is coming to a close, there will be lots of other important ways for you to support our work including helping keep EHTs reaching villages with vital preventative care.  They conduct water and sanitation inspections, monitor environmental health so that diseases don't result in outbreaks and they educate people on related issues. They deliver the basic health services that the developed world takes for granted. Together, we can move global health forward. 

Thank you for all of your support!
