YEN.com.gh is in possession of a video of the story of Dahabu Adi, a hospital laboratory technician, who is helping to save lives in rural Kenya.

According to her, she recently had two miscarriages and therefore knows that pain of losing an unborn baby.

BBC News Africa reports that since February 2018, Adi and her team have helped 268 women in Moyale, a village in Kenya, to safely deliver their babies.

She adds that her team covers 10 villages to reach the pregnant women and give them clinical assistance.

The expectant mothers initially rejected the trackers because of their traditional beliefs but opened up to it after it was inserted into ‘imus’, a local wristband for women and children.

Social media users have expressed their admiration for the work that Adi is doing with her team:

Mohammed expressed conviction that women can create things more than men.
