I have seen Christy Turlington in the news quite a bit recently. She has created Every Mother Counts, an organization she founded to help others get involved. Ms. Turlington is also promoting a documentary. In this documentary she traveled the world to create “No Woman, No Cry”. This film was made with the purpose of spotlighting why so many women die during childbirth. Every day 1000 women die from maternal complications as 90% of them are preventable. The film made its TV debut on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Every Mother Counts is an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase education and support for maternal and child health.Every Mother Counts seeks to engage new audiences to better understand the challenges and the solutions while encouraging them to take action to improve the lives of girls and women worldwide.
