Mothers’ Sacrifices

St. Francis Emmaus Center’s 20-bed facility has remained full during the last few weeks as mothers have arrived day by day with the hopes of delivering their babies in safety. Many of them make dangerous, days-long treks through the jungle, over mountains, and across rivers to get to their destination.

For most of the mothers the travel itself is a huge risk, but the high infant mortality rates and lack of access to medical care make it worth it. Once they arrive, they are welcome to stay as long as is necessary before making the same precarious journey back home with their new baby, sometimes even with additional children they were forced to bring with them.
