I spent many years living in Mexico City. There are very rich areas and very poor areas. Medical care isn’t available for everyone. Many women go without prenatal care. Their first visit to see a doctor could be when they go into labor. They don’t take pre-natel vitamins or change their diet to make sure they are getting the proper nutrients. They can’t afford it.
One year while my children were in a Vacation Bible School I hung out with some of my friends and we made blankets for newborn babies. The church was going to deliver these blankets to a hospital that would wrap the newborn babies in newspapers when they don’t have blankets available.
I no longer live overseas but I love that Kangu will make it easy to help pregnant women make sure they get the care they need. Kangu is a non-profit organization with a big dream: that every woman in the world has a safe birth. Kangu is a crowdfunding platform that is designed to help put an end to preventable maternal and newborn deaths by enabling people to donate to provide life-saving health services for pregnant women – mamas – and their babies in need – all over the world! Many of the complications and deaths could be prevented with proper medical care.
Did you know: Every day, 800 women – nearly 300,000 every year – die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth; 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries.
If you have never heard of crowd funding, it is a wonderful and easy way to help others raise money for a great cause. Through crowdfunding, Kangu can help provide a way to save the lives of mamas and their newborn babies.
At www.kangu.org, anyone – anywhere – can search profiles of pregnant women in need and contribute towards eliminating the financial barrier for a specific woman to access high-quality healthcare before, during and after childbirth. These services, provided by vetted local medical partners, are proven to reduce maternal and newborn deaths by up to 80%.
Kangu has identified local non-profit hospitals and clinics in developing countries that offer life-saving healthcare services to pregnant women and their newborns for an average of $250. This small amount covers everything from prenatal care, delivery with a trained professional, emergency obstetric care, postnatal care, clean supplies, medications to treat infections, and newborn immunizations.
Just a few dollars can provide the live saving care for a mom or baby. Visit Kangu and read the stories of the mamas from all over the world.
