Artwork Honors Mothers Lost in Childbirth

"Stories of Mothers Lost is a stunning collection of fabric panels created by men and women to honor the lives of loved ones needlessly lost in 20 countries, from Afghanistan to Uganda and Bangladesh to Burkina Faso, India and Tanzania. Created by the WRA, with support from the United Nations Population Fund, and on display for the first time in October 2007 in London, this traveling exhibition shines a global spotlight on the changes necessary to ensure every woman's birthright - to live through pregnancy and childbirth, ready to nurture children and contribute to the vitality of her community and nation."

I discovered this through my friend and trainer Melissa
