From Sierra Leone to St Petersburg, FL: “Africa’s Future in African Hands” Tour featuring Nurse-Midwife Mary Koroma

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: The nationwide “Africa’s Future in African Hands” Tour will stop in St. Petersburg, FL  on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, 6:30 pm at 1000 Central Ave, St. Pete, FL!

“The AFIAH tour focuses on the issue of infant and maternal health in Sierra Leone, Africa and the African Diaspora and will showcase the power of African people working together to develop African communities.

“Nurse Mary will be traveling to the US from Sierra Leone, which has the world’s highest ratio of maternal mortality with 1 in 8 women at risk of dying during childbirth and one of the highest global rates of infant mortality with 123 of every 1000 babies not surviving to the age of one.

“However according to the AFIAH tour organizers, ‘despite the great barriers to health care faced by Sierra Leone’s people, this is not a tour emphasizing charity and hopelessness’. Instead, Nurse Mary will be highlighting how African people in Sierra Leone, and beyond, have organized in their own interest to overcome this issue.” [Read more in the official press release!]
