With the holidays, the recent elections and the ongoing chaos of the Trump administration it’s easy to overlook the goings-on outside the U.S. border (and we didn’t even mention the border situation).

A safe birth kit assembled by the UNFPA can provide sterile supplies to local midwives and volunteers for only $5. These kits can and do save the lives of delivering mothers. Make your donation here:
