Every two minutes a pregnant woman dies needlessly. Six newborn babies die every minute. Some of these deaths will happen while you read the information on this website.

99% of women who die from pregnancy related causes live in developing countries. Around 98% of these unnecessary maternal and newborn deaths are preventable, mostly through low-cost, low-tech solutions.  Our work addresses this problem directly and saves mothers' and babies' lives.

Every £5 you give can reduce a mother’s chance of dying in pregnancy or childbirth by 50%. And her baby has a much better chance of reaching its first birthday.

Please act now to save mothers and their babies.
