EVERY MOTHER COUNTS.
Every Mother Counts is a maternal health organization that links mothers to providers of essential care by addressing three barriers to maternal health:
Many women live miles away from healthcare providers and facilities, with extremely limited access to transportation.
Skilled attendance at all births is considered to be the single most critical intervention for ensuring safe motherhood.
Health centers and caregivers lack the basic supplies and equipment necessary to do their jobs.
Dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.
“Each preventable death is one death too many.”

The New Yorker breaks down the Sochi logo, noting the lack of any graphic image—a sharp departure from previous Olympics. Some see hidden meanings though. As one commenter noted: “When the logo was unveiled, the joke in Russia was that the blue font symbolizes pipes with natural gas – the main Russian export that basically pays for the Olympics (and main foreign policy weapon).”
“Gas stations aren’t pretty, especially the stark, utilitarian ones that sit just off the highway with their filthy bathrooms and broken vending machines. But a handful of stops along an Amsterdam roadway got a glowing renovation. Literally.”
