Stop South Sudanese Moms from Dying in Childbirth



This project will save the lives of hundreds of mothers and babies. It will fund the supplies midwives need to deliver babies safely. It also will train midwives to deal with childbirth complications.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The maternal mortality rate in South Sudan is one of the highest in the world. An absence of trained healthcare staff, structures, and paved roads means the small, rustic maternity clinic Hope Ofiriha runs in the Onura settlement is the only medical facility about 3,500 area women can turn to give birth. The clinic isn't fully equipped to handle deliveries, so many mothers needlessly die giving birth.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our Onura Maternal Survival Project will pay for sterile medical supplies; a childbirth delivery bed; and training for midwives on handling delivery complications and providing prenatal and postnatal care, newborn care, and family planning services.

Potential Long Term Impact

Making sure mothers have midwifes during delivery who have the supplies and skills needed to deliver babies safely stops childbirth from being a death sentence for so many women. When a mother survives childbirth, outcomes for her family improves.
