Women and Children First
Our vision is for a world where all women and children have good health and no longer die from conditions that are treatable or preventable. We work in some of the world's poorest communities in Asia and Africa to stop mothers and babies from dying during pregnancy, childbirth or in the first few days and months of life. Our work improves a mother's chance of surviving pregnancy by up to 45%.
We do this by running self-help community women's groups where women are given the information and knowledge they need to keep themselves and their babies safe, and where they can receive good quality health information and care from properly qualified professionals.
We have 6 amazing marathon runners this year who are all running to save lives. Please support them.
