We are so proud to have CleanBirth.org featured in the book 100 Under $100: One Hundred Tools for Empowering Global Women. I just received my copy this week and its incredible to see our small but mighty org listed.
Yesterday, the author Betsy Teutsch featured us in a blog post that she wrote on Kveller.com! (http://www.kveller.com/how-to-help-the-worlds-poorest-women-give-birth-safely/) Here’s a quote from the article:
“In each of my book’s 100 entries, I include an actionable item. CleanBirth.org focuses on Laos, a country with very high maternal death rates. For a $10 contribution, donors underwrite the cost of two Clean Birth Kits, provided to a nurse who both educates her pregnant patients and provides them with kits. CleanBirth offers attractive gift cards, making it easy to extend the blessings of the safe childbirth we take for granted to places where something as simple as a birth kit can save lives. The also sell Birth Provider Thank-You Cards for expressing gratitude to the doula, midwife, labor nurse, Ob-Gyn, and pediatrician.”
So thrilled that we get a mention as an “actionable” item and to be included in this amazing book.
