Health check

Thanks to some help from Oxfam, mums like Ashma in Sierra Leone have less to worry about. In the past, Sierra Leone had one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world, so being a mum-to-be could be fraught with worry. But things have changed, thanks in part to Oxfam pushing the country’s government to introduce free maternal healthcare. Mums like Ashma have been experiencing the benefits. She attended the pre-natal clinic three times before giving birth to her first child, Edwina, in hospital, and all her treatment and medicines were free. “I came into hospital at 6 o’clock in the morning and I delivered at 10 o’clock. There were no problems and I went home the same day. It was all free. I’m happy my baby is healthy and eating and sleeping well.” Ashma Turay.
