In June, through the generosity of John Massey, we expanded our reach among the nomadic women to six new trainees at Tamesna. We included two of the previously trained who could help out. Rabi, formerly our nurse at the Tamesna clinic and now the director of our traditional birth attendant program conducted the training. She is also attending medical school in Agadez with our support so she has a lot on her plate.
Our matrone program has now expanded to a total of 52 active nomadic women helping women give birth safely.
