Free ambulance service for expecting moms

When the Kenyan government introduced a dusk to dawn COVID-19 curfew, Dr. Jemimah Kariuki noticed increased cases of pregnant women either dying or delivering distressed or stillborn babies. One of the reasons was a lack of transportation during curfew hours. Together with a group of fellow medics, she started the Wheels for Life initiative which offers free ambulance services for expecting mothers.
