Fairfield honors 2011 CNN Hero of the Year Robin Lim at Sondheim Theater for the Performing Arts

March 2, 2013

When Robin Lim returned home to Fairfield for a hero’s welcome she was honored by the City of Fairfield with a proclamation given to her by Mayor Ed Malloy. Robin also shared some birthing stories with us. One of them was very funny of a Russian couple who wanted to have a home birth, an orgasmic birth. This video begins with several video clips about Robin and her CNN introduction, presentation and acceptance speeches.

Founded in 1995, Bumi Sehat is a non-profit, village-based organization that runs two by-donation community health centers in Bali and Aceh, Indonesia.
