Lifesaving Birth Care

By Vicki Penwell | Executive Director

UNICEF just put out a new report this week stating that despite progress in maternal/child health, every 11 seconds a pregnant woman or newborn dies somewhere around the world. 

“Around the world, birth is a joyous occasion. Yet, every 11 seconds, a birth is a family tragedy,” said Henrietta Fore, Unicef’s executive director. “A skilled pair of hands to help mothers and newborns around the time of birth, along with clean water, adequate nutrition, basic medicines, and vaccines, can make the difference between life and death."

We must do better!  We must do all it takes to save these precious lives. And that is where NGOs like Mercy In Action come in. We have now provided safe, clean, compassionate and evidence-based midwifery care for the births of more than 15,000 babies in the Philippines since 1991.  With excellent outcomes.

Poverty, lack of facilities, and inadequate and expensive health services are the problems women face. 

Mercy In Action has pioneered a system of free to the patient maternity care that meets these needs. But we could not do it without our donors. Your support helps us continue to provide top-level services with added benefits to families like baby clothes, blankets, and food, prenatal vitamins, and children's vitamins and medicine.

Thank you for your support!
