Four score and ten years ago, our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty (Liberia), and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, but unfortunately,   our mothers, sister and friends have not been receiving the proper Maternal Health Care that  they deserve.

Today's prayer service at the Benson Street Mosque was a historical one, in which Mosques Leaders saw the need to save our mothers and sisters from maternal deaths.

Indeed, this truly demonstrates that the society is ready to save our mothers from avoidable pregnancy related deaths by providing effective health care.

We highly appreciate the Mosque leaders for joining the   "SAVE" campaign. Also, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the good and lovely mothers and fathers that speared their own precious time in joining us at the prayer ceremonies.
