ABC News closes out its Year-Long Global Health Series by Examining the Most Dangerous Thing a Woman Can Do: Why So Many Women Are Dying During Pregnancy and Childbirth
Please tune into ABC’s 20/20 with Diane Sawyer tonight, Friday December 16th at 10PM ET, as she addresses why so many women are—1,000 every day – are dying during pregnancy and childbirth.
This 20/20 special will wrap up a year’s worth of ABC programming – and giving – to address global health issues. The segment will provide a look at the challenges faced by mothers in developing countries, as well as the low-cost, low-tech solutions, including UNFPA’s Clean Birthing Kits which your contributions have helped sustain over the last year, to ensure the health and dignity of women and their newborns.
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 deliver safe babies in crisis situations.
Thank you for spreading the word about tonight’s special feature and for your support of UNFPA’s life saving work in 2011. This holiday season, we hope that you and your friend will consider giving the gift of safe motherhood through UNFPA.
