Each year, hundreds of thousands of women die because of pregnancy- and delivery-related complications. 90% of these deaths are preventable.
The Birthing Project has teamed up with AYZH, a social enterprise founded by social entrepreneur, Zubaida Bai. AYZH has developed an affordable SAFE BIRTH KIT which contains essential medical supplies to keep mothers and their babies safe throughout the birthing process.
THE SOLUTIONS WE'RE PROPOSING
W4's field program, Birthing Project, is now making these kits available for their sisters throughout Africa and Latin America. Each SAFE BIRTH KIT includes:
→ A sterile surgical blade and handle
→ A blood-absorbing soft sheet
→ Cord clamps
→ Medicated soap
→ Biodegradable packaging
THE IMPACT OF GIVING
These six seemingly commonplace items have the power to prevent maternal and infant deaths. By sponsoring (a) SAFE BIRTH KIT, you can give women and their babies the opportunity of a healthy, safe birth!
