Save Lives: Empower Local Healthcare Workers

Welcoming a child to the world can be a scary prospect — but for new mothers with access to the support and care they need it can also be a truly joyful one.

Unfortunately, too many women around the world don't have access to those resources. And for them, childbirth isn't just frightening — it can be deadly.

1,000 women die from the consequences of pregnancy and childbirth every day. There is hope though, and it doesn't take massive infrastructure or an extensive healthcare system to turn the tide.

According to the WHO, something as simple as one skilled birth attendant can stop many of these preventable deaths — but only if women have access to their skill and support. That's why it's so important to spread awareness and raise support for programs that train local healthcare workers within the communities that need their help most.

Take action today: Add your name to stand with Project HOPE and the work they do to provide training, and support local healthcare workers to stop preventable death from pregnancy and childbirth.
