Pregnancy isn't always a time for joy in many developing countries around the world. Each year, an estimated 358,000 women die due to complications related to pregnancy and childbirth; 99% of these deaths occur within the most disadvantaged population groups living in the poorest countries of the world. That's 980 women a day who could be saved with proper care during delivery.

For example, trained midwives who have basic materials make all the difference in rates of survival of mother and baby. A midwife who has the tools to attend a clean, safe delivery prevents tragic deaths.

Our Mission

Through education, service, and financial giving, Direct Relief Women dynamically supports the work of Direct Relief International in creating healthy families around the world and around the corner.

Help Us Reach Our Goal

A gift of $25 supports one safe delivery for mother and baby. Our goal is to raise funds to support 5,000 safe deliveries this year. You can help by donating online today - and share the gift of a safe birth.
