Maternal Health 2012 gift list
What better way to show your mother, your wife, or someone else close to you how special she is than by making a gift in her honor - to help AMREF save women’s lives in Africa.
Better health for mothers and families
$1,500 can secure a safe water supply for a community.
A clean water supply reduces diarrhea-related deaths of infants by 25%. Clean water also helps prevent the spread of cholera, typhoid, malaria, yellow fever and other water-related diseases.
$250 can provide basic training for a community midwife.
AMREF trains community midwives on how to recognize and treat common illnesses, when to refer women to the hospital during complicated births, and the importance of referring all HIV-positive mothers to hospitals. An AMREF-trained midwife saves the lives of women and their newborns. Donate now
