Singapore is one of the safest places in the world to give birth. But mothers in many other countries are not so fortunate. Please join us for the screening and discussion of ‘No Woman, No Cry’ this Saturday 21 March at 3.00PM at SIM University. This film is a powerful documentary about maternal health and the challenges faced by pregnant women in four parts of the world: a remote Maasai tribe in Tanzania, a slum of Bangladesh, a post-abortion care ward in Guatemala, and a prenatal clinic in the United States.
Following the film, there will be three speakers that will share more about the issue:
- Chua Yang, a gynaecologist who founded Global Clinic to help women in remote parts of the world,
- Arul Chib, a NTU professor who advocates for the use of mobile technologies in developing countries to improve maternal health and
- Bernice Wong, a photographer who will share insights from working on a documentary on maternal deaths in Cambodia. RSVP now!
