This Mother’s Day, honor your mother by participating in fundraising and hands-on sorting at the Afya warehouse. Supporting Afya helps save the lives of countless mothers and their newborns throughout the developing world.
Every hour in the developing world, 33 women die in childbirth. 600 babies are born dead or die within weeks of birth.
The devastating truth behind this unacceptable loss of life is that, for the most part, it is preventable. In fact, 5.9 million children under 5 die from preventable causes and 52% of maternal deaths can be attributed to highly preventative causes like hemorrhage and sepsis, which can be prevented with the proper (basic) supplies.
Please support Afya in any way you can to save mothers and babies in the developing world. Please fill out the donor information below. If you are able to donate, we encourage you to do so in honor of somebody you love, like your mom! Donation Dedications are featured in the Afya newsletter!
