Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
