Midwife Program

Also in conjunction with Solidarity with South Sudan, SRF funds classes and instructors for the Midwife Program. SRF has one of the highest child mortality rates in the world. An unfortunate, graphic statistic for South Sudan is that a fifteen year-old girl has more chance of dying in child birth than of completing her secondary education. This program is sending qualified midwifes throughout the country. Pictured below is Sister Marie Theresa and midwifery students.
