CATHOLIC MEDICAL MISSION BOARD (CMMB): Simple Items Saving Lives: A Kitting Event for South Sudan

Sarah Rubino is a nurse midwife who volunteered with CMMB in Nzara, South Sudan last year. She will be returning to South Sudan in 2020 for two mission trips. In this article, Sarah reflects on her experience creating kits for newborns and mothers and just how important they are.

Sometimes the weather can determine if a baby lives beyond 24 hours after birth.

That is the reality when a mother delivers her baby in Nzara, South Sudan. A reality that my Western medically trained mind took a long time to come to terms with. For almost a year, I worked as a nurse-midwife in South Sudan.
Violence and unsafe road conditions during the war would affect travel and interfere with supply trucks, creating stress on the supplies we had on hand.
