Yai, a mom of 4, lost a baby last year. From infection. She lives in Tahoy District in Laos, where now she has access to Clean Birth Kits.
“In the past, my newborn and I got an infection. The baby was not health for two months. Then she died. After using a birth kit for this baby, we are safe and did not get an infection. The cord was clean and dried well. Before I used bamboo to cut the cord and string I found in the house. That’s why my child got an infection. When I took him to see the doctor, he couldn’t help. It was too late.”
We are giving Yai, the volunteers who help her and the nurse in her area the resources they need to make birth infection-free.
For $5 Yai had a safe birth. $5 Saves 2 Lives.
