Every day, hundreds of mothers and babies in Africa die during childbirth. According to UNICEF “Every single day, Nigeria loses about 2,300 children under five and 145 women of childbearing age. This makes the country the second largest contributor to the under–five and maternal mortality rate in the world.”
A big cause of the problem is a lack of access to clean and affordable birth kits in rural communities where over 54 million women live and work. HelpMum provides sterilized and affordable birth kits containing essential supplies required during childbirth to ensure a safe and hygienic delivery.
