Why such a Meaningful Cause?

Well, let's first share some mind-boggling information with you relating to this Cause. Why the urgency, and our engagement to such a commitment to serve underprivileged women and children in dare need of basic healthcare to survive.

The official statistics from the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) reveal a very shocking trend where underprivileged women and children die in circumstances that are preventable today in most countries:

  • Almost three quarters of all newborn deaths occur in South Asia and Africa, 15 of those 20 countries with the highest neonatal mortality are in Africa.
  • In Africa a woman has 1 in 16 chances of dying in pregnancy or childbirth. For instance in Niger the chances are 1 in 7 for women.
  • Almost 4 million newborn deaths each year, an additional 3.2 million babies are stillborn and one third of whom die during labor.
  • Many infants in Africa die at home without receiving any formal medical care and is unrecorded.
