Please join us as we GIVE (a safe) BIRTH this giving season!
Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every day. The good news is that 90% of these deaths can be prevented. We have the tools and the know-how to save these mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, teachers, doctors, caregivers and community leaders—if we make it a priority.
Every Mother Counts is a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide.
As part of our efforts to GIVE (a safe) BIRTH, Every Mother Counts will match dollar for dollar the first $10,000 raised so your gift’s impact will be doubled. What will these donations do for mothers in Haiti? It will help us support our partner, Midwives For Haiti, to construct a solar-powered birth center and clinic in Saltadere in rural Haiti. This much-needed clinic will serve roughly 150+ women and their babies each month who currently have limited or no access to care.
$20,000 will allow Midwives For Haiti to repair and upgrade an existing building to serve as a birth center for a population that has limited access to health care. The funds will support the building repair and upgrade of the electrical system, plumbing and water, and will renovate and secure the grounds to make the facility ready to serve moms and babies. In addition, Every Mother Counts will support the staffing and operation of the birth center following its construction.
Please join us in making Every Season and Every Mother Count!
