One Kit Saves Two Lives - Saturday,
APRIL 7th, 9 - 2 P.M. at Salem Lutheran Church, 1211 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale, CA 91202
It's an incredible human tragedy.
Over a million African babies are estimated to die in the first 4 weeks of life - up to half on the first day. Many babies are not named until six weeks of life so the mourning of mothers and families is often hidden. And 1 in 13 mothers die of causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.
Infection following delivery is the leading cause of death among these mothers and newborns. But the risk of infection can be greatly reduced by providing the most basic elements of medical sanitation during childbirth ...soap, a clean blade to cut the umbilical cord, a clean cord to tie the umbilical cord, and a clean sheet for the mother and baby to lie on during delivery.
Imagine that - you can SAVE TWO LIVES! But to pull it off, we'll need volunteers to assemble kits and lots of generous sponsors to help cover the cost. Will you join us?
