We are creating a future in which women do not needlessly die giving birth and babies do not needlessly die being born.
We provide birthing supplies and education which enable safer, more hygenic birthing and prevent infection and death.
We believe that women and infants should not die because they lack medical care, birthing supplies and education. Yet, each year millions of mothers and babies worldwide die needlessly from birth-related causes. One mother dies every minute.
CleanBirth.org seeks to prevent these deaths in Laos by training local nurses to educate women in their communities about safe birthing practices. Further, we provide the nurses with Clean BIrth Kits, a package of sterile birthing supplies, which women can use during delivery.
The CleanBirth.org program is simple: give nurses what they need to care for their pregnant patients. And it's cheap: $5 give a mother a life-saving Clean Birth Kit, trains nurses and covers the cost of transportation.
