Safe Motherhood Tool Kits

Price: $165

Gift Overview
Gift Overview


In rural Ethiopia, access to professional maternal healthcare is virtually nonexistent. Birthing complications can quickly turn deadly for both mother and child or lead to painful, demoralizing health issues like obstetric fistula, which leaves a woman completely incontinent.

These women are stigmatized by their communities and are considered “cursed” by God. They are left feeling hopeless and even abandoned by their own families.

That is why World Help is partnering to provide safe maternal healthcare throughout rural Ethiopia. We train and equip women to return to their communities as ambassadors who instruct others in proper care before and during their pregnancies.

As a part of their training, each of these women receives a small tool kit with the supplies needed to share their message: a mobile phone and SIM card, a radio with preloaded healthcare programming, batteries, instructional booklets, quality shoes, an umbrella, and more.

By helping to provide one of these tool kits, you prepare these ambassadors to do their jobs well—ultimately preventing heartache and empowering women with the knowledge they desperately need.
