Caring for mothers-to-be
About this gift
Every day, approximately 800 women die during pregnancy or childbirth—often from preventable causes. In places like Kenya, we train local women to be midwives, who provide critical care for expectant mothers from pregnancy through childbirth. A trusted midwife provides a mother-to-be with the advice, medical assistance and other support she needs to keep herself, and her baby, healthy.

What others say
Why they'll love a Rescue Gift
The IRC is the gold standard of aid groups working with refugees. I’ve seen it in action in Darfur, Chad, Central African Republic, Greece, Jordan, South Sudan and other places.
