Vivian holds her nephew

Woman in white blouse hold young boy in her arms.

Vivian Badu holds four-year-old Nicolas, who was born shortly before his mother—Vivian’s sister—died of excessive bleeding after childbirth. Despite no reliable source of income, Vivian cares for her own three children as well as her sister’s six children. With the help of maternal health supplies, Vivian, currently three months pregnant, hopes that she will not suffer the same fate as her sister. Photo: PATH/Evelyn Hockstein.
