SAFE MOTHERHOOD

20/01/2012

MALAWI |

The mortality rate of mothers and children born in Malawi is staggering…

The number of women who die in childbirth in Malawi is nearly a hundred times higher than the ration in the United Kingdom and other developed countries. (*Warning: NSFW!!)

.

The Safe Motherhood Malawi Project was developed for Malawian mothers, educating midwives to train community-based health workers to improve midwifery knowledge and care.

.

These photographs were captured by Paolo Patruno, a photographer focused on humanitarian issues and social documentary while working with Non-Profit Organizations.

.

Patruno beautifully documents the lives of these women and their newborn children.
