Rachel worked in Spain before Malawi. She helped one couple through a heartbreaking stillbirth. "Loss of a child, loss of a dream, loss of a future with that little one. How to explain with no explanation." Yet this happens every day in that hospital in Malawi, there are explanations, and yet we read it as statistics. Just to be born in Malawi means you have a chance only if things go well and if you're in the right place.
They deserve better.
