Will you help a mom-to-be in Haiti today? There are thousands of women living in rural parts of Haiti, forced to give birth in a mud hut, with limited supplies. A lack of access to clean supplies may cause death due to unsanitary conditions. In fact, Haiti has the highest maternal mortality rate in the Western hemisphere.
Help us to provide clean birthing kits for women in need today.
Covering everything needed for a safe home birth, Love A Child distributes nearly 200 Birthing Kits each month, lovingly packaged and donated by amazing people like you!
