The work of Save the Mothers continues during
the COVID-19 Pandemic. You can help!
Be an Advocate for Change:
At this time of year, we usually promote our ‘Walk to Save a Mother.’ Many of you work very hard to organize these walks, and many more take part and fundraise. These events are a fun tradition and thanks to your efforts, they have saved countless lives.
This year, we expect that we will not gather to ‘Walk to Save a Mother,’ as we have in the past. Our priority is your safety. Therefore, I invite you to consider finding other ways to support mothers in need.
Even in this unprecedented time, your help is vital. We cannot abandon mothers. I invite you to reach out to your network as you would for a walk, and still fundraise to help moms and their babies in East Africa. In the coming weeks, we will be providing support and ideas to help you make a big difference for women in need.
While our world is upside down, babies are still being born, mothers are still facing emergencies. You can be a gamechanger.
Every day over 800 women will die from pregnancy or childbirth-related complications. Over half of these deaths occur in the poorest areas of Africa (WHO, 2018). This May, join people across North America who fundraising to save the lives of some of the most vulnerable women and their babies.
