2017 Zonta Birthing Kits Project
Date: 16th & 19th August 2017
Location: Somerville House
Please join us for our 12th Annual Zonta Birthing Kits Project!
Every 2 minutes a woman dies of complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, but a birthing kit could make all the difference. A birthing kit holds supplies to meet the seven basic requirements for a clean birth and potentially saves the life of a mother and baby in a rural or remote community. This year we will be assembling 13,000 kits which will be distributed to expectant mothers in regional areas of Papua New Guinea and other developing countries.
With the generous assistance of Zonta’s sponsors, the birthing kit supplies have been produced but the kits won’t assemble themselves! We need volunteers to assist us to prepare and assemble kits!
