Right now, in a remote village, a mother is about to give birth. She wanted to give birth in a health centre, but it’s too late.
She will give birth at home. No medical help. No equipment. Nobody there if something goes wrong.
Every day, newborn babies are dying from preventable causes.
Women in remote communities around the world need support and advice from trained midwives, access to life-saving equipment, and a place to stay at health centres before and after they give birth.
With your support, mothers can keep their babies safe from harm.
