Celebrate the season of giving with SOGH and support our maternal health project!
Donate throughout the month of December and receive a holiday e-card, designed by our talented SOGH member Helena Viñas Gaza, as a thank you.
All proceeds will be used to purchase birth kits to support our maternal health work in South-Eastern Uganda with the Mama & Family Project. Health facilities often ask women to purchase and bring items such as sheets, gloves and soap with them when they come to deliver, a financial burden that can be the decisive factor between a facility and a home delivery. As such, the donation of these birth kits lift the financial stress of obtaining the items, allowing women to use the money for transport and other supplies. These kits are particularly important to ensure a safe delivery for both mother and child, particularly as 1 in 49 women in the region die from pregnancy and 3 out of 100 babies die within their first month of life. As such your donations can help save lives.
A donation of as little as 42kr covers the cost of one birth kit.
