Throughout Southeast Asia and most of Africa, lack of access to healthcare still makes childbirth one of the most deadly events in a young woman’s life. According to the World Health Organization, complications during pregnancy and childbirth are the leading cause of death and disability among women of reproductive age in developing countries.

Since 1979, the Charities Advisory Trust has been working to find practical methods of redressing inequalities and injustice. Among their many projects is making medical care more available for young mothers-to-be.

Your click today will help 100 women have the support and aid of a midwife during pregnancy and childbirth.
