In some of the communities where ChildFund works, delivering a baby is a life-or-death matter. ChildFund works to protect new mothers and their babies with safe delivery kits.
In more remote communities, these delivery kits contain a plastic ground sheet to give birth on, soap to wash hands, gauze to wipe a newborn babies’ eyes, and a sterilised blade to cut the umbilical cord. These reduce the risks of infection and possible death for both mother and child. In communities where healthcare facilities are available, these donations will help cover the cost of pre and post-natal medications to keep mothers and their babies healthy.
