Description

Malakal, South Sudan. This newborn baby and his mother Sunday were at the UNICEF supported Maternity ward in the Malakal hospital. Sunday was referred to the Malakal hospital because of complications relating to her first birth of a baby boy. Sunday is very happy now to have a healthy baby. She has both a boy and a girl, this makes her beam with happiness.

In South Sudan, 91 percent of all pregnant women deliver in their homes without access to a skilled birth attendant. As a result, only 5 percent of maternal and neonatal tetanus cases are reported.

Last year, in South Sudan alone, UNICEF supporters helped provide 20,000 pregnant women with access to skilled care at birth, ensuring their babies were welcomed safely into the world.
