Bleeding, anemia, hypertension and premature birth are some of the risks that haunt adolescent mothers in Cartagena. For the babies, the risk of dying within five years old increases in a 28% compared to children of women between 20 and 29 years. I'd b e volunteering in Cartagena with an organization that has been instrumental in attacking child mortality in the Colombian Caribbean coast, which had the highest rates across the country. I will help take care of pregnant women and teen mothers, including helping them with the care of their babies. This experience would contribute to my ability to increase my Spanish fluency and enhance my plan to facilitate Hispanic/American relations.
