If it wasn’t for the fantastic help we get in this Country I wouldn’t have lived passed 18 years old!
After a 50 hour labour I was prepped for a c-section as I hadn’t progressed past 3 cms dilated and my unborn baby was in distress!
My gorgeous first born – Lero 1996
I was lucky that health care professionals performed surgery and handed me my beautiful son! Since then I have relied upon the help of our health professionals to deliver me two more beautiful children!
We take things like this for granted in our Country but sadly in the world’s poorest countries there is a massive shortfall in health workers. Half of the 8 million children who die each year are in Africa, yet Africa has only 3% of the world’s doctors, nurses and midwives.
On Tuesday Christine Mosler fromThinly Spreadwill attend the UN General Assembly in New York. She’s going to pressure David Cameron to play his full part in solving the health worker crisis. She’s done it before and she can do it again. We can help her.
