"My wife had a safe delivery at the clinic. That means better health for my child too.” - Khalid, Pakistan, whose wife received medical care for the birth of her child.
In Pakistan, 12,000 women die from pregnancy-related causes every year. Cultural barriers often prevent women being seen by male doctors and, with no medical care, women are forced to give birth at home without access to the most basic health services. In the most remote parts of Pakistan, there is limited knowledge about safe birth practices.
Your gift of $25 will help supply safe delivery kits and training to local women in these remote village areas and at district health centres. These kits contain simple items such as soap, a plastic sheet and sterilised gloves to help stop the spread of infection and save the lives of women in childbirth.
