Every year over 350,000 women will die as a result of pregnancy and child birth. 99% of these deaths are in low resource countries.
Somaliland has only 112 midwives for a population over 3,5 million. Medical Aid Films contacted us to tell the story about Somaliland’s 113th midwife, Badra. She travels to the capital city of Hargeisa to learn essential skills which she takes back to her community; spreading knowledge and awareness, transforming Somaliland’s health system, and saving lives.
Our time spent in Somaliland, working on Badra’s Story became an unforgettable project for us. We got to experience the buzzing capital city Hargeisa as well as rural areas in the desert. One of the highlights was definitely to attend the birth in the hospital!
