Naomi Estela is a mother who has made a difference in the lives of other mothers.
She has been a CMMB community health worker for nearly five years in Trujillo, Peru. She has seen the positive results that come from educating mothers in her community about health care and nutrition. She has seen children gain weight and grow once they are treated for anemia and their mothers learn about nutrition. Naomi Estela believes an increase in hand washing has reduced illness among her neighbors and she enjoys helping them. The mothers in Naomi Estela’s community trust her and seek her out for advice. We couldn’t serve this needy community without Naomi Estela’s passion and commitment.
Regular prenatal visits with a trained medical doctor mean mothers even in remote areas, can start taking good care of their babies before they are even born.
