A Safe Delivery
Safe childbirth, even in chaos
In the midst of war or disaster, mothers still give birth, despite the chaos around them. In places like Syria, where outbreaks of violence can cut off access to health care, childbirth can pose life-threatening risks. Our teams make sure that women living through emergency situations can deliver babies safely. A kit of simple, hygienic supplies, including rubber gloves, a bar of soap and a warm blanket for the newborn, can help make childbirth safer — and happier — for both mother and baby.
