The birth of a baby is such a precious time. But in Somalia it can be a worrying time for expectant mothers too, due to lack of access to medical facilities and the threat of complications in childbirth.
The thoughtful gift of safe motherhood will provide essential training for midwives to safely deliver babies and deal with emergency situations, making childbirth safer and happier for more mothers and babies in Somalia. The gift will also provide mothers with a baby kit with a shawl to swaddle their baby, together with a bag, powder and soap.
