Our partner, Shanti Uganda, is helping women experience safe deliveries in a country where 310 women out of 100,000 live births die during childbirth.
Now that a new year has rolled around Shanti Uganda has embarked on new opportunities to give and help women have healthy babies and safe, clean births. You can donate to provide more solar power for their birth house, purchase an acre of land to expand their services, provide birth supplies and transport, as well as contribute to their Vancouver office.

The White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood

You can provide monthly or single donations to help keep women alive giving birth.
