Why Women & Children
That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

Why Women and Children?

Why Women and Children?

Every year 289,000 plus women die from pregnancy and childbirth related complication and nearly 3 million newborn babies die every year. That is in equivalent to the population in Orange County California. Majority of these occur in Africa (or sub-Saharan Africa). The fact is nearly all are preventable with access to basic quality health services.

What’s The Situation?

What’s The Situation?

Every two minutes a woman dies from pregnancy complication or childbirth. That is 800 women a day. Gestational diabetes affects 1 in 7 births which is also rising very fast. Currently 75% of people with diabetes live in the developing countries. Not to mention 2.6 million stillbirths occur yearly as well.

Pneumonia is widespread in Africa killing 920,136 children under age 5 years old. Diarrhea takes 525,000 children’s lives yearly. Another risk factor is Motherless children are 10 times more likely to die within 2 years of their mother’s death.

The real issue is 99% of all these deaths occur in developing countries which 80% happens in Africa.

Our Solution!

Our Solution!

We face these preventable deaths from newborn babies to maternal and pneumonia which we can eliminate today. We tackle the problem by providing essential pediatrics, gynecologic and obstetric health services to underprivilege women and children in Africa at no charge.

We create community awareness, offer prevention support and counseling services all focused on the well-being and health of the poor children and women across Africa.
