Maman Haiti

Julie RÉmy, Medecins Sans Frontieres

Haiti has the grim distinction of being the poorest country in the western hemisphere and the nation with the highest maternal mortality rate. Amid severe political and social instability, MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières) offers emergency obstetric care to pregnant women living in the slums of the capital, Port-au-Prince. Following alongside MSF teams, Rémy chronicles new and future mothers struggling to survive sexual assault, gun battles, poverty and the trauma of the surrounding violence on a daily basis.
