Summary

For as little as $11 you can help UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, get 3 emergency clean birthing kits, including a bar of soap, clear plastic sheet, razor blade, an umbilical cord tie, cloth and latex gloves into the hands of pregnant mothers and health care workers as they safely deliver babies in crisis situations.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In a crisis or refugee situations, one in five women of childbearing age is likely to be pregnant. Conflicts and natural disasters put these women and their babies at risk because of the sudden loss of medical support, compounded in many cases by trauma, malnutrition or disease, and exposure to violence. UNFPA seeks to make motherhood as safe as possible during crisis situations by providing care before, during and after delivery.

How will this project solve this problem?

UNFPA's clean birthing kit can mean life or death for a pregnant woman and her baby. By providing at least the most basic essentials, the kit helps pregnant women who are unable to get to a health facility on a crisis or emergency situation.

Potential Long Term Impact

UNFPA is working with governments and partners everyday to help strengthen health systems and increase access to care in over 155 countries, areas and territories around the world.
