Christmas Appeal 2019 - The greatest gift

What is the greatest gift of Christmas?
A safe childbirth for mothers can mean new hope

The best gifts of Christmas are not wrapped. Our ability to bring hope into our lives and the lives of others, is the greatest gift to bestow and receive.

Countless women and children are dying needlessly from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth and for want of basic medicine.

In many cases, access to a skilled birth attendant, emergency transport to a clinic and medicine can make all the difference for a mother and her child.

These deaths are preventable!
