‘Every Mother counts and health care is a human right’ said Robin Lim, CNN’s 2011 hero of the year.
In 1995, Robin Lim founded Bumi Sehat, a non-profit, village-based organization in Indonesia that offers free prenatal care, birthing services and medical aid.
“Every baby’s first breath on Earth could be one of peace and love. Every mother should be healthy and strong. Every birth could be safe and loving. But our world is not there yet,” Lim said during “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute.”
According to the United Nations Population Fund, three out of five women giving birth in South Asia do so without a skilled birth attendant on hand. This results in an incredibly high maternal and infant mortality rate.
Robin is passionate about and committed to reducing maternal and child morbidity and mortality. Her work in partnership with individuals and communities serves as an inspiration and example for women all over the world.
