Story and Perspective

Meet Sufia and baby Rifa Moni

Bangladesh

In early August, historic monsoons triggered landslides, flooding, and unforeseen destruction in Rohingya refugee camps. Latrines, health clinics, and homes were swept away.

When we met her, Sufia was pregnant with her first child at age 21 — and preparing for the difficult realities of giving birth in the refugee camp during monsoon season. This video tells her story, and shows how support from friends like you helped deliver baby Rifa Moni safely in the middle of a crisis.

About Us

Pathfinder International is driven by the conviction that all people, regardless of where they live, have the right to decide whether and when to have children, to exist free from fear and stigma, and to lead the lives they choose. As a global health organization with locally led, community-driven programs, we support women to make their own reproductive health decisions.

We work with local partners to advance contraceptive services, comprehensive abortion care, and young people’s sexual and reproductive rights in communities around the world—including those affected by poverty, conflict, climate change, and natural disasters. Taken together, our programs enable millions of people to choose their own paths forward.

With your partnership, we’ll keep pushing for women, girls, and young people to have the services they need despite every barrier they have before them—even a global pandemic.
