WHAT WE DO
In the villages where we work, women give birth alone in the forest.
To make birth safer, together with our Lao non-profit partner, we:
Provide life-saving Clean Birth Kits and Train Nurses
We empower local nurses and volunteers to make birth safer in their own villages.
Donate Clean Birth Kits
This year approximately 1 million women and infants will die of infection after birth. For every woman who dies 30 more suffer a debilitating illness or permanent disability. CleanBirth.org provides low-cost, life-saving birthing supplies to nurses and their patients.
Sponsor Nurses' Training
CleanBirth.org trains nurses to use and distribute Clean Birth Kits. We train nurses in 4 Districts of Salavan Province to use, distribute and track the use of Clean Birth Kits. The nurses also learn the importance of spreading information about safe birthing practices. Further, they are trained by midwives from the Yale School of Nursing in the WHO’s Essentials of Newborn Care.
Your tax-deductible donation will provide pregnant mothers with Clean Birth Kits and education. You will also ensure that babies have a safe birth day.

Do Clean Birth Kits prevent maternal/infant deaths?
“A systematic review identified 30 studies showing that clean birth practices can substantially reduce neonatal mortality and morbidity from infection-related causes, including tetanus.”
