Women And Children First (UK)
Women and Children First (UK) helps stop mothers and babies from dying.
More than 98% of mothers and babies who die during preganacy, childbirth or in the first few days of life, live in the world's poorest countries. They die from conditions that are treatable or prevenatable and which aren't typically life-threatening in the UK.
Our simple model of women's self-help groups run in local communities is highly effective in saving the lives of mums and babies.
