A mother for life: maternal health in Afghanistan
Theme: Maternal health
Country: Afghanistan

World leaders recognised that mothers are so important that their health became one of the eight Millennium Development Goals.

Sadly, around the world a woman dies nearly every minute during pregnancy or childbirth. Nearly 99% of these deaths occur in poor countries. Each year, one million children are left motherless.

Through the stories of Nazoko and Khohargol, pupils will learn how Christian Aid are helping to keep mothers in Afghanistan safe and healthy.
