ASTER [Local Health Worker]
I became a local health worker because I wanted to serve my community. I wanted to help mothers and children with the health problems they face, which I’ve grown up seeing in my area.

ASTER
If I could have one wish, I wish to see mothers and children safe, healthy and well educated.

What makes me happy is saving the lives of mothers and children who are suffering from treatable and preventable illnesses.
