Dr. Jean Chamberlain Froese - January 23

Dr. Jean Chamberlain Froese, Order of Canada, Executive Director of Save the Mothers. The organization goal is to train local leaders in the developing world to reduce maternal mortality within their own countries. 16 to 20 women die everyday in Uganda giving birth. Jean has been working with individuals and groups in Uganda to change this trend. Save the Mothers is developing leaders, transitioning power to indigenous leaders and making real change for women.  "People need to be part of this change."  Save the Mothers organizes a walk each year in the Dundas Driving Park on Mother's Day weekend.  More information at info@savethemothers.org (905 928 7283) Introduced by rotarian John and thanked by rotarian Barb.
