Child & Maternal Health

Infants, Children, and Women should not be allowed to die from preventable health crises.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 830 women die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth and
99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries. Not only that, but maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities. WHO also notes that in 2017, 4.1 million (75% of all under-five deaths) occurred within the first year of life.

That is unacceptable.

And that is why we are working to create change by providing infant, child, and maternal health support and services; collect and analyze data on why mortality rates are so high in the first place, and provide physiotherapy and emotional support for children and families with disabilities.
