Monique and the Mango Rains: An Extraordinary Story of Friendship in a Midwife's House in Mali

by Kris Henderson - £9.99  Oneworld Publications (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781851688371 | ISBN 10: 1851688374

Monique Dembele saves lives and dispenses hope in a place where childbirth is a life-and-death matter. Her unquenchable passion to improve the lot of the women and children in her West African village is matched by her buoyant humour in the face of unhappy marriage and backbreaking work. This is the deeply compelling story of the rare friendship between a young development volunteer and this midwife who defies tradition and becomes too early in her own life a legend.
Kris Holloway served as a development volunteer in Mali, West Africa, from 1989 to 1991. She holds a masters degree in public health and currently works for an overseas study organisation based in the USA. This is her first book.
