Aisha is being carried for two hours through the Afar desert in Ethiopia through 45-degree heat and on a homemade stretcher. She is in labour and the men are trying to find some mobile phone reception to call our ambulance. The ambulance is another four hours away. No wonder so many women are still dying in labour. $200 is all it takes to provide five clinic visits and a safe hospital delivery in one of our hospitals.
