On Saturday May 10th, at the Lachine Canal, there's a 5-kilometre walk to raise funds and awareness for an organization that promotes maternal and child health in the developing world.  It's a registered Canadian charity called Save the Mothers.

They join Sonali Karnick in studio. Dr Jean Chamberlain Froese, is the Canadian obstetrician and gynecologist who founded Save the Mothers. She's also the executive director. She's on the line.
