Description

The moving and sometimes humourous account of how a Welsh neonatal nurse was so moved by a TV programme that she contacted the BBC, raised money and along with three other supporters, travelled to Chad in Central Africa, where a single doctor was struggling save women's lives. All that was needed to save these women's lives were basic cheap drugs which are found on all delivery units in the West. Dr Grace Kodindo, an obstetrician did not have these drugs available until the donations started arriving. She was trying to manage the unmanageable. The maternal mortality rate in Chad is 1:11. with at least one woman and her baby dying every day. The visit was filmed by the BBC PANORAMA team and included meetings with the Chadian Health Minister, three Representatives of the The United Nations Population Fund and has culminated in hundreds of lives being saved, succeeding where the mighty United Nations has failed to meet one of its' own Millenium Development goals. The visit contained life-changing experiences, a "hands on" emergency where the author tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate a newborn infant.The book is an incredibly emotional account of the most extra-ordinary nine days the author had ever known, during which she a nurse of 30yrs was reduced to tears.
