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.
