In the photographer's words: "To visit an African rural mission hospital is to be humbled by the need and by the strength of the people. St. Albert's Mission Hospital in northern Zimbabwe provides a shelter where women with problem pregnancies can stay until the baby arrives. The mothers-to-be, such as this woman, cook meals over an open fire in the shelter's kitchen area. The women provide their own food, cookware and bedding, and gather their own firewood."
