The Mama Bambini PROJECT

Did you know…

Maternal mortality is nothing short of a worldwide epidemic. Nearly every minute of every day, a woman dies from pregnancy-related causes. And, for every woman who dies, 30 more are injured, infected or disabled during pregnancy and childbirth. But we know how to prevent most of these deaths and complications from occurring.
The threat doesn’t end after birth. Nearly 10 million children under the age of 5 die each year in developing countries, mainly from preventable causes. According to UNICEF, nine out of 10 women in sub-Saharan Africa will lose a child during their lifetime.
According to the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), each year, more than 500,000 women die globally from complications in pregnancy and childbirth. The U.N. Millennium Development has made a Goal towards reducing maternal mortality by three-quarters by 2015.

Sixteen Ugandan women die per day while giving birth due to complications during pregnancy or delivery, according to the statistics from the ministry of health. As a result, Uganda is unlikely to achieve the Millennium Development Goal 5.

To do exactly that, I have begun working on
The Mama Bambini PROJECT
Saving the Lives of Mothers and Babies Around The World

My primary focus is going to start in Uganda, a country in Sub Saharan Africa. I am working with contacts to make and distribute Mama Childbirth Kits to pregnant mothers in Uganda. These kits give mothers in developing countries the basic necessities to help them have a cleaner safer birth. These kits have been proven to decrease the number of mother and infant deaths.
