Dear Mumma x I=Change

In New Zealand and Australia we are privileged to receive quality birth care and support.
We are committed to helping others in need. The 3 projects we have chosen support Women and Mothers

End Violence against Women

In the highlands of PNG, up to 100% women experience violence regularly. Many are beaten on a daily basis. Sexual harassment is also extremely common in markets, where women's ability to do business is crucial for the strength of their communities. When women are safe from violence, entire communities and economies flourish.

UN Women is:
- Supporting local services to meet the needs of women.
- Training male community leaders to understand and communicate that violence against women is a crime.
- Providing training so women can earn an income and support their families.

Provide a safe birth

Papua New Guinea has one of the highest maternal death rates in the world. 98% of these deaths are easily preventable.

Send Hope Not Flowers works with Australian Dr. Barry Kirby in remote Milne Bay Province, PNG. We gift families with a Baby Bundle to incentivise mothers to come to a health clinic to give birth. The bundle is filled with basic supplies for mother and baby - and includes the $5 cost for delivery at the clinic.

The Baby Bundle project is directly responsible for a 78% decrease in the maternal death rate in the region.

Send Hope Not Flowers is dedicated to helping mothers survive childbirth across the developing world.

Save Mothers Lives 

In Eastern Burma, 1 in 12 women are at risk of dying during pregnancy or when giving birth. 1 in 5 children will also die before the age of five. These are some of the highest rates in the world.

To prevent maternal and infant mortality, safe delivery and proper care in the early days of a child’s life is essential.

Mae Tao Clinic offers comprehensive care for pregnant women and babies through antenatal care check-ups, delivery with a trained midwife and treatment in case of emergencies, helping to save the lives of mothers and babies.
