World Vision Training Midwives in Afghanistan

You absolutely have to watch this. My WV colleague John Schenk, who created this short documentary, is a real artist.

Behind the scenes with World Vision’s John Schenk who escorted an MSNBC crew in Afghanistan to film this story on life-saving midwives.

I have visited myself last year this midwifery programme in Herat, Afghanistan and I was very impressed with the dedication and professionalism of those who run it.

This is Christian charity (i.e. love) at its best. A ray of light in the midst of utter poverty and nightmarish religious fundamentalism. Axios! (They are worthy!)

  1. Women are in deep need of medical attention. Midwives reach out to the remotest corners of the world where some doctors dare not go. I applaud my fellow midwives in Afghanistan. Let’s support them with proper education, continuous training and the right supplies.
