Summary

The majority of maternal deaths worldwide are preventable. LifeSpring Foundation seeks to enable safe childbirth by directly connecting sponsors with Indian women who desire an institutional delivery.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

For as little as $15, you can help sponsor a safe pregnancy and delivery package for a woman living below the poverty line. Around the world, maternal mortality needlessly claims one woman a minute. LifeSpring Hospital has provided over 6,000 safe deliveries, along with regular pre- and post-natal care for thousands more. Your donation will help the poorest women access the care they need for a safe childbirth.

How will this project solve this problem?

LifeSpring Foundation allows donors to directly sponsor the deliveries of women too poor to afford high quality hospital services. The Foundation has partnered with Hindustan Latex Family Planning Promotion Trust (HLFPPT) for collecting funds abroad.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project seeks to sponsor safe deliveries for 500 women living below the poverty line in India. This will enable safe health for mother and baby, and work towards reducing maternal mortality and morbidity.
