Supporting peace through care of mothers and babies—creating a healthy new generation

In Afghanistan, a woman dies every half an hour as a result of complications from childbirth. To help women deliver safely, we ’ve run a Maternity Center in the isolated Panjsher Valley for over a decade. Women will travel for days to reach us to give their babies a healthy start to life. All care is provided completely free-of-charge.

Help us give more mothers a place to deliver in a safe environment. The Maternity Center serves an area of over 1 million people, and we have begun expansion to provide room for 600 babies to be born each month. Your help is needed to complete this expansion. Join us in supporting peace and healthy deliveries---- every dollar counts.
