We’re working to ENSURE EVERY WOMAN HAS THE CHANCE TO GIVE BIRTH FREE FROM FEAR
We’re working to overcome the main barriers to safe labour by providing free transport and access to hospital care.
Remote Transport provides free hospital transport to expectant mothers. We work in the villages of Mokhotlong district, in Lesotho’s rural highlands, where poverty is deeply entrenched and most families cannot afford hospital fees nor transport.
The mountainous terrain and poor infrastructure means that people can walk 5 hours before reaching their nearest clinic. When women fail to receive adequate care during labour and delivery, both they and their babies face increased risk of complication or death.
