We are creating a future in which women and babies do not needlessly die during birth.
CleanBirth.org with our Lao partner organization, ACD, trains local nurses to provide pregnant women with basic birthing supplies and education about safe, hygienic birthing practices.
I am a mom committed to helping other mothers. When I learned that Laos, a country I had visited many time, had among the highest rates of maternal and infant mortality rates in the world, I wanted to help.
With the goal of making birth safer, I formed CleanBirth.org partnered with ACD, a Lao non-profit working with ethnic minortity groups in southern Laos. In the villages where we work, women give birth alone in the forest -- sometimes with fatal consequences.
ACD and CleanBirth.org provide $5 ayzh Clean Birth Kits that contain life-saving, hygeniec supplies which prevent infection at birth. We also train local nurses, who distribute the kits to remote villages and educate mothers about how to have a safe pregnancy and birth.
