IMA World Health
Organized by: Cristina Keplinger
According to the World Health Organization, for every woman who dies in childbirth, 20 more suffer injury, infection or disease.
That's 10 million women a year whose lives are at risk, and whose children suffer with them.
IMA World Health's Safe Motherhood Kits™ provide clean and sterile birthing supplies to expectant mothers in developing countries – areas where infant and maternal mortality rates are among the highest in the world. Too often, unsafe and unsanitary birthing conditions are to blame.
Every mother and child deserves a safe birth
Each Safe Motherhood Kit™ contains essential clean and sterile supplies including gloves, umbilical tie, scalpel, gauze pads, plastic sheeting, bar of soap, washcloth and baby supplies (a hat, tunic and blanket). IMA also provides education on safe birthing procedures and training on the proper use of a Safe Motherhood Kit™ to ensure the safest birth possible.
One $25 donation provides an entire Safe Motherhood Kit™ to an expectant mother, from the materials and packaging to shipping, delivery and training. Think of it—a $25 donation may be a matter of life and death for a mother and her baby.
