Right now, 830 mothers a day are dying from preventable causes (WHO). Our Motherkind maternal health campaign provides women in Afghanistan and Somalia, two of the most high-risk countries around the world, with comprehensive pre-natal and post-natal care.
Our local clinics provide trained midwives, dedicated delivery suites, vaccination programmes, medicines and vitamins as well as awareness-raising sessions on everything from nutrition to hygiene. Our Afghanistan clinic alone assists around 360,000 people each year.
Here are two examples of the impact your donation can have:
- £60 can train three female health workers to support mothers and babies
- £570 can run a Motherkind clinic for a day, serving 400+ patients
Your Zakat and Sadaqah will be used to support the vital work of our existing Motherkind clinics as well as helping us expand our services to other high-risk areas.
