Safe Motherhood

In Ethiopia, access to professional maternal healthcare is virtually nonexistent, making the risk of stillbirth and birth-related injuries extremely high. One condition in particular—obstetric fistula—causes physical debilitation and social isolation. You can help a woman suffering from obstetric fistula by equipping her with the skills she needs to start her life again.

A monthly gift of $125 provides one woman with:

  • Transportation
  • Housing during the rehabilitation process
  • Biblical training sessions
  • Evangelism classes
  • A personal audio Bible and radio
  • Program literature and curriculum resources
  • Professional counseling
  • Support and encouragement from women who have completed the program
