I just read a stat that shocked my socks off: 1 in 7 women in Papua New Guinea die during childbirth.
1 in 7 die
Ok. Right now I want you to list off 7 friends who are women. Pretty easy. Now imagine one of them not making it because they delivered a baby. And do it again if you can. 7 more acquaintances. You get the picture. The sad picture. The reality of being a woman in a developing country trying to bring life into the world.
Won’t you join me and visit this website? For a mere $10 we can provide 5 birthing kits to enable women to bring their babies into the world.
What a gift for a mother (5 mothers!) on a day like today when we honour motherhood.
