Robin Lim

Congratulations to the lovely Robin Lim, CNN’s Hero of the year 2011.

Robin Lim is an internationally-recognized midwife, well-known author and talented poet. Her non-profit Indonesian birthing and educational clinics have saved hundreds of lives and delivered thousands of babies over the last decade, serving the poor and medically disenfranchised citizens of Bali and, far away, in the tsunami-ravaged province of Aceh, Sumatra.  After 13 years of service and frequent financial challenges, “Ibu” (Mother) Robin and her organization remain indefatigably committed to changing the world, one gentle birth at a time.
