We’re thrilled to congratulate this year’s CNN Hero of the Year, Robin Lim!
As a midwife, Lim has helped thousands of low-income women have safe birthing experiences in Indonesia.
We’re especially excited about the recognition of Lim’s hard work because maternal health is an issue near and dear to our hearts. Earlier this year we announced a partnership with Every Mother Counts, an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase education and support for maternal and child health.
“Today on our Earth, 981 mothers in the prime of their life will die — and tomorrow again and yesterday,” she said. “And I’m asking you to help change that. We don’t even know how many babies are lost, but all of us can help change that.”
