How VHW saved my life during my pregnancy

“Thank you for saving my life after I became seriously ill during my pregnancy. If it wasn't for the VHW Health Center in Kigutu, I would not be here with my daughter today.” – Chantal Harerimana, VHW Clinic patient and mother.

Chantal is a 38 year old woman living in Kigutu and mother of six. Her youngest daughter was named Margeaux Ndindiriyinyishu after Dr. Margeaux Harrison, the gynecologist intern who helped during her delivery at the Sharon McKenna Community Health Center in Kigutu. During her pregnancy, Chantal spent two months as an inpatient in the Health Center because she was suffering from diabetes. She received daily injections and food for free.

"It would have been very difficult for me to handle the long time that I spent as inpatient without Village Health Works' support on a daily basis. Many thanks again and again to VHW!" - Chantal
