HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
Today, as we celebrate Mother’s Day in several countries aorund the world, take time to show your appreciation by reaching out to mothers in need.
This year, instead of just sending flowers, consider honoring your mother with a gift that can help save the life of a mother and her baby by providing an Emergency Delivery Kit. Women living in extreme poverty are often forced to give birth in horrible conditions with little or no supplies.
For almost three decades, BTJ has been working in disaster areas, war zones, and areas struck with extreme poverty. Women and children are often the first to fall victim; that is why BTJ missionaries have been providing aid, supplies, and even training beside midwives who deliver babies in remote areas of the world.
Fewer things bring more joy than the birth of a new baby and few things can cause more challenges than the complications of giving birth in an environment where supplies are simply not available.
This Mother’s Day, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, BTJ is providing Emergency Delivery Kits for mothers and their babies. These unique kits, put together by BTJ’s special on-staff medical doctor, contain the essential supplies needed to prevent infection during childbirth – one of the leading causes of maternal mortality globally.
Each kit contains needed supplies including, but not limited to:
- Sterile gloves
- Sterile apron
- Sterile umbilical cord scissors
- Sterile umbilical cord clamp
- Cotton gauze
- Absorbant towels
- Pictorial instructional card
This life saving kit costs only $10 to provide. For the price of an extra value McDonald’s meal, you can help save the life of a new mother and her baby.
This Mother’s Day – invest in a mother and her baby by sending an Emergency Delivery Kit.
