Two Questions for Dr. Anne Marie Keus at Masanga

18. December, 2011
About motivation, privileged people complaining, and saving lives.

Serious birth complications are part of the everyday challenges at the Masanga Hospital, says Dr. Anne Marie Keus, who has worked at the hospital for two years. In this brief excerpt she answers two important questions about her motivation as a doctor and secondly about the special operations performed at the Masanga Hospital for women in difficult delivery. Help Every Day is supporting The Masanga Hospital by financing 20 ceasaeran section operations.

So many women in this country die in relation to giving birth – in fact Sierra Leone has one of the highest maternal and infant mortality percentages in the world. Why is that?

Article in Lokalavisen Århus

24. November, 2011

We recently hit the local newspaper of Århus, Denmark's second largest city. The article was short, precise and optimistic as it focused on the method of Coins of Compassion:

"You don't get a happy marrige by simply remembering your annivesary and you don't get in super shape by running one time every year. As with relationships and fittness, we're trying to turn generosity into a consistent every day thing".

Another main focus was the way Help Every Day looks at change and how to initiate large change processes:
"In our time there's so much focus on YOU and how YOU can change the world. We're turning that picture into a big WE instead."

You can read the full article in danish right here: http://aarhus.lokalavisen.dk/50-oeren-goer-en-forskel-/20111123/artikler/711229436/1449... (Read more)
