At least 50% of the worlds population lives without access to essential healthcare; leading to 810 mothers to be dying every day from preventable causes.
Whilst the maternity mortality rate is dropping, there is still a major problem. With over half of the worlds population living without access to essential healthcare services, expectant mothers and children are facing real problems. There is a clear disparity between wealthy countries and families and poor families; we firmly believe healthcare should not be dependent on how much you earn.
In 2017, 5.4 million children under the age of five died and the risk of infantile death is eight times higher in Africa than it is in Europe. Alongside that, the same study revealed that globally 810 expectant mothers died every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy childbirth. Perhaps even more shockingly, 94% of all maternal deaths occur in low and lower-middle-income countries.
It is not just about providing the services and doctors in the delivery, but also about safeguarding mothers and infants from future problems. Your donation, no matter how big or small, will let us provide safe delivery of a new born and Fistula Surgery alongside things such as Infant Incubators and Ambulances.
The choice of life and death should not be dependent on the overall wealth of your family or the country you live in. We want every mother to experience the joy of raising a child is and with your help, we can provide essential healthcare services to mothers around the world.
