Host a baby shower with a difference!

The baby may already have everything he or she could possibly need, but it’s always nice to have an excuse to gather friends together before the little one is born.  

Invite your friends and family for a baby shower to benefit mothers and babies in need. Instead of bringing gifts, you can ask people to help pregnant women in crises settings by donating clean birthing kits. Your friends can donate directly and purchase the $3 life-saving clean delivery kit.

When a disaster strikes, mothers and babies are cut off from health care and exposed to trauma, malnutrition, disease and violence – putting their lives in great danger. In these settings, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is one of the first responders on the ground to specifically address the needs of women and girls in conflict areas.  UNFPA’s clean delivery kit provides the most basic essentials for preventing fatal infections and ensuring a safer, cleaner delivery.  

UNFPA works in over 150 countries to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.

The simple kit costs only $3 and contains a bar of soap, clear plastic sheet, razor blade, an umbilical cord tie, cloth and latex gloves. This kit can mean the difference between life and death for a pregnant woman and her baby in a crises setting.

Thank you for your support!
