At Direct Relief, May is for moms. Throughout the month, we will regularly honor mothers around the world who inspire us. Today’s story comes from Dr. Mark Scoffield, CEO of American Medical Overseas Relief.
Mursal is a mother in Afghanistan who is also a neonatal nurse for American Medical Overseas Relief (AMOR), a Direct Relief partner. While this may not seem all that unusual, it is in Afghanistan – a country where women have largely been excluded from education, and even killed for attempting to seek one.
