One midwifery kit
American Refugee Committee
Pregnancies can be complicated. They require periodic care to protect the health of mother and child. And, of course, mothers need care and assistance when they actually go into labor. But many health facilities are damaged or destroyed in times of conflict and disaster. Doctors and health professionals may have fled. Local health systems can’t cope with demand for services. And pregnant mothers may be lost in the shuffle.
Your gift will give expectant mothers the support they need. From providing training and education to midwives, to equipping them with the sterilized and safe delivery and first-aid kits they need, to providing mothers and infants with post-delivery care – giving birth will be easier and safer. What gift is better than giving a mother and child a healthy beginning? Your loved one will be glad you’ve given them the opportunity to start a life out healthy.
