Your donation will provide poor women, and those from remote areas, with quality maternal healthcare decreasing the number of women and babies dying during labour, or suffering injuries like obstetric fistula, during labour and birth. 

What will my donation provide:

  • $20-50 - will pay for the transport of a woman to hospital.
  • $70 - will pay for a safe delivery in hospital.
  • $100 - will pay for a caesarean section in hospital.
