Ethiopia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. Without access to professional obstetric care during birth, the chance that an Ethiopian woman will die giving birth is 1 in 27. In rural Ethiopia, only 3% of all births are professionally assisted, which results in thousands of deaths and birth-related injuries every year—obstetric fistulas being the most common . . . and devastating. This humiliating injury has stigmatized and isolated too many Ethiopian women and girls for far too long. Join World Help in our commitment to promote better maternal healthcare, provide needed fistula repair surgery, restore dignity, and foster emotional healing for mothers throughout Ethiopia.

Rescue for Haiti's Children
Haiti is home to nearly 500,000 orphans—left behind by the AIDS epidemic, water-borne diseases, limited medical care, and the devastating 2010 earthquake. What’s more, abject poverty and a national water crisis cost the lives of 1 in every 7 children in Haiti. What many consider a crisis too complicated to solve, World Help is dedicated to ending. We see the future of Haiti’s children differently . . . one characterized by healing, health, restoration, and hope.
