The Maternal Health Crisis
Delivering Vital Care to Struggling Mothers
Motherkind is our maternal health campaign which aims to support new and expectant mothers in some of the most high-risk countries
Even in the best circumstances, motherhood can be quite the challenge. And it is much worse for mothers in developing countries who lack education, are living in extreme poverty and do not have access to healthcare facilities. Sadly, for these mothers, pregnancy and childbirth is a matter of life and death!
It is reported that Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia account for eighty-six percent of maternal deaths worldwide. Inequality in access to quality healthcare services results in these startling gaps, and surprisingly, many of these deaths are PREVENTABLE!
Moreover, mothers without access to prenatal care are also more likely to give birth to low-weight babies, resulting in higher infant mortality rates.
Our Motherkind clinics in Mali and Niger aim to provide new and expectant mothers with better and more accessible healthcare. By providing vital antenatal and postnatal care to mothers in low-resource settings, we believe we can significantly reduce maternal deaths.
Moreover, our clinics also provide educational workshops, educating mothers on good dietary practices as well as providing immunisation for children- vaccinating them against several diseases including tuberculosis, measles and polio.
Our aim is to help reduce these startling maternal health statistics and provide mothers and babies the healthcare they rightfully deserve. That’s why we ask you to CONTINUE BEING MOTHERKIND!

Keep A Child Alive
Children living in poverty are more vulnerable to illnesses due to a lack of access to healthcare facilities. Through our Motherkind clinics, we run a comprehensive immunisation program for children- vaccinating them against several diseases including tuberculosis, measles, polio and tetanus.
Our trained nurses and doctors at the clinics take a holistic approach at ensuring children’s health is improved and they also educate children on how to maintain good hygiene practices. Through your help, we aim to improve nutrition in children in the most-remote communities in Mali and Niger.DONATE NOW
Help Mothers Survive
Due to poverty and conflict, many mothers suffer from undernutrition in pregnancy resulting in maternal deaths. To prevent nutrient deficiency disorders, our clinics provide supplements such as Vitamin A, iron and foliates to pregnant and lactating women. Our clinics ensure mothers have access to quality healthcare facilities during pregnancy and childbirth.
We also host regular discussion sessions to educate local women on good dietary practices and enlighten mothers on what local ingredients they can use to maintain a balanced diet for themselves and their children.BE MOTHERKIND
