Maternal mortality in various parts of Africa is so vast that it is gaining attention world wide. It warms my heart to see a growing number of people and organizations getting involved to rid the continent of this medical affliction. In response to the incredibly high maternal death rates in Sierra Leone Victoria's Secret model, Selita Ebanks, has established a foundation called Shine on Sierra Leone, which directly addresses this issue. If we not only educate ourselves on global quandaries, but actively take steps to deal with them, so much positive change could be seen in the world. Yes she is a model and yes she is a celebrity, BUT Selita uses the resources available to her to make a difference especially with an issue close to her heart...something we all can do.
