Equipment for a Birthing Centre
The Birthing Centre at Pipaltar provides a safe place for women to give birth with a skilled birth attendant on hand. Anita, and Auxillary Nurse Midwife, uses basic equipment provided by UMN to help with antenatal checkups and during deliveries.

HIV and AIDS can tip a vulnerable family into absolute poverty. One result is that children can no longer afford warm clothes in winter and school supplies to continue their education. A bag of books and a warm jacket can make such a difference!
