Thank you for your support, everyone! And a huge thank you to everyone who donated! We are currently in first place as we hit the 24 hr mark See More

THE STORY:

Postpartum hemorrhage or PPH is a condition in which a mother bleeds excessively after childbirth. Even though it is completely treatable, it kills nearly 80,000 women every year in the developing world. We have an innovation that promises to change this heartbreaking statistic and need your help to do so.

Any woman who delivers her baby outside a hospital or clinic will need to be transported to a better equipped health facility if she starts bleeding uncontrollably after childbirth since it can result in a rapid and painful death.  Many women in developing countries deliver in such circumstances and are stabilized during transport using a device called the NASG, which slows blood loss by applying pressure on the woman’s abdomen and legs. However, the NASG's lack of pressure detection capability hinders its efficacy. My colleague and I have developed a patent-pending pressure sensor device specifically to optimize NASG use. We request your support to: 

  1. Fund the application for FDA approval of our device                                                       
  2. Fund manufacturing costs to mass produce our device for distribution in developing countries

We have identified potential NGO partners for the implementation phase of our project and will be working with them post-FDA approval. Please support us in this quest to ensure that mothers everywhere have an equal chance at life. Thank you. Learn more about our work at www.savingsara.org
