Kangu is the world’s first crowdfunding platform for safe births for pregnant women and newborns worldwide. The WHO estimates that every day 1,000 women die in childbirth. And for every woman that dies, another 20 experience life altering harm. Kangu lets anyone with $10 to give become part of the solution.
At www.kangu.org, users can search profiles of pregnant women (initially in India, Nepal, and Uganda) and fund a specific woman’s access to high-quality healthcare before, during and after childbirth. These services are proven to reduce maternal mortality by up to 80%. Kangu transfers donations to vetted on-the-ground hospitals who provide patient-centered healthcare services and then share updates on the funded woman and the outcome of her birth.
Kangu’s innovative fundraising platform unlocks a new source of capital for hospitals and non-profit organizations, expands access to life-saving services for pregnant women in need, and creates an easy and meaningful way for individuals to have an impact on an issue close to their hearts.
