Will This Ever Change?

Imagine if your sister, friend – or yourself – had to give birth in these conditions.

I witness many things in this clinic. What makes me sad is when a baby dies during birth.

Then the family gathers in the clinic and they ask me to take the baby to the grave. The family will be very upset – usually they are crying.

It is not the custom for many people to follow a baby to the grave.

So usually they will stay here and I will wrap the baby in cloth and put it in a cardboard box.

Frightening, but unfortunately, a reality for millions upon millions of people.
