28-year old Fezascola Kabana from DRC has 4 children while 2 passed on. Due to limited access to information and family planning services, she was not able to properly space her children in the way she wanted to.

“Through the community family planning health education and service camps organized by Shared Action Africa, I got information on the different family planning methods and I was able to start using an Implanon for 9 months now. The camp increased access the family planning services to my fellow women and I because before it was expensive to go the health facility. Moreover, I regularly get information from a village health team member in my village hence I feel very comfortable with my method of choice. Being able to plan my births has only helped improve my health but has also improved my income as I can now spend enough time in my business. I am able to take care of my children and I am not worried about an unplanned pregnancy,” said Feza
