Improving maternal and neonatal health
Leverage your impact with a matched gift, which will strengthen regional health systems, improving neonatal and maternal healthcare in the Amahara Regional State of Ethiopia.
Receiving professional healthcare during pregnancy is essential to preventing complications and death in mothers and infants. In Ethiopia, despite significant improvements in access to health services, maternal and neonatal mortality rates remain among the world’s highest. Your gift can change lives!
This matching opportunity is part of the $24.9-million Canada-Africa Initiative to Address Maternal, Newborn and Child Mortality, a partnership among four Canadian organizations — Amref Health Africa, Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, Centre for Global Child Health at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and WaterAid Canada.
Your matched gift will help:
Your investment will give mothers and infants a better chance to survive and thrive. It will provide a safe place to give birth, reducing complications and mortality rates; provide essential equipment and medicines; increase healthcare training, especially in maternal, neonatal and child health; and enable comprehensive health education in nutrition, sanitation and hygiene.
