Doctors Without Borders - Because Tomorrow Needs Her:
You may know that Doctors Without Borders provides medical care in emergencies around the world, but did you know that the majority of their patients are women and children? Providing women’s healthcare in the places they work can be extremely challenging but it’s incredibly important. Saving a mother’s life can mean saving at least one additional life since children who lose their mothers are far less likely to survive. They need her and we need her because tomorrow needs her. See www.womenshealth.msf.org or #tomorrowneedsher.
