Woman receiving reproductive health care.
More than 33,000 people have fled conflict in Ethiopida for nearby Sudan. Most of these refugees are women and children, with violence concentrated among men. One woman said, "I have seen men are slaughtered in front of my own eyes. I cannot forget that. I ran from home when the gunfire was going off. I still don’t know where my father and brothers are.”
The refugees are moving to Sudan just a few months after Sudan experienced the worst flooding of the past several decades. UNFPA is working to meet the reproductive health needs both of refugees and of those affected by the floods.
Conflict and natural disasters don't stop women from giving birth. Your gift of $15 provides three emergency birthing kits, so women can safely deliver their baby even in a humanitarian crisis.
One Ethiopian refugee lost her baby at 9 months when she couldn't reach a health facility in time. No woman should have to endure such hardship. UNFPA's work includes referring women to facilities that can manage obstetric emergencies. Many times, these women need a Caesarean section to save their life and the life of their baby.
$150 provides a rural clinic with the medicines and equipment it needs to safely manage obstetric emergencies.
UNFPA estimates that there are at least 700 pregnant Ethiopian refugee women and 20,000 pregnant Sudanese women in need of lifesaving reproductive health care. You can be there, for every woman and baby.
Your contirbution of $25 provides one woman with the hygiene supplies she needs to care for herself and her baby for the first six months of life. You can provide this healthy start.
