Followin' Mama

6 x 8

This painting is my entry in the Every Mother Counts Challenge.  All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the aid organization Every Mother Counts.

The need: Every 90 seconds, a women dies from childbirth. Fully 90% of those deaths are preventable.  Every Mother Counts is training midwives in Afghanistan, opening health clinics in the Democratic Republic of Congo and shipping unused medical supplies to South Sudan. These are tangible, practical projects designed to combat maternal mortality and injuries worldwide.
