Nearly 1,000 women die each year in Cameroon because they want to give life to many other Cameroonians. if it's not she who dies is the new baby .Many women and girls from Cameroon give birth without prenatal visit.Some women were lack of means forced to aborted, others give birth and leave the newborn in the trash because of the lack of accountability of perpetrators of those fat. Other women and young mothers are forfeited at the hospital or in health center because they fail to pay the bills. 
How will this project solve this problem?
