Philippines

Context

We belong to the Dulangan Menubo indigenous tribe and live in a remote mountainous region of Sultan Kudarat, Mindanao, Philippines. We live subsistently and have no access to medical care that ensures survival in times of need, particularly in addressing delicate pregnancies with birth complications – especially so for our younger mothers. We have to travel three hours on a rough road to get to the nearest Provincial hospital equipped to handle these cases.  Mothers put their own and their babies’ lives at risk, by giving birth in their own homes without professional assistance and sanitation, as we cannot afford the high cost of transportation and hospitalization.
