Statistically speaking, Liberia is the fifth most dangerous place in the world to be born or give birth. Dee Gordon of Salt Lake City and Marcia Stevens in Liberia have created the Hawa Project to change that morbid statistic.
On June 19, 2014 at noon Eastern, Dee and Marcia will join me for a live discussion to talk about their efforts to save lives in Liberia. Tune in then to watch the interview live.
More about the Hawa Project:
The primary goal of The Hawa Project is, through a partnership with SLEMP Medical Clinic, we aim to grow a Women’s Health Initiative whose focus is ongoing education and a clinical site, where women of child bearing age can come for HIV/AIDS education and counseling in prenatal care, family planning and parenting classes.
