Safe Birthing in Bangladesh
About This Mission Project
For women living in remote rural areas of Bangladesh, accessing skilled help during pregnancy and childbirth is difficult, resulting in high child and maternal mortality rates.
In response to this need, IM partner Symbiosis has trained a number of community birth attendants who are ready to assist mothers in one of the poorest areas of Bangladesh.
Symbiosis will use an existing building to deliver a range of maternal and child health services, including antenatal and postnatal care as well as a safe birthing facility.
- $50 raises awareness among 40 women regarding maternal and child health issues.
- $100 provides antenatal checkups for 160 women.
- $250 buys essential medicines for 400 women.
- $500 pays the quarterly wage of a community birth attendant.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $19,256 to establish a new maternal and child health facility in one of the poorest areas of northern Bangladesh.
This much-needed service will raise awareness about important maternal and child health issues and help ensure safer birthing.
The project will be managed by Symbiosis, a trusted, longstanding IM partner NGO that has been working in Bangladesh for 22 years.
For the first three years, the goal is to reach 50% financial self-sustainability.
