Papua New Guinea has one of the highest maternal death rates in the world. 98% of these deaths are easily preventable.
Send Hope Not Flowers works with Australian Dr. Barry Kirby in remote Milne Bay Province, PNG. We gift families with a Baby Bundle to incentivise mothers to come to a health clinic to give birth. The bundle is filled with basic supplies for mother and baby - and includes the $5 cost for delivery at the clinic.
The Baby Bundle project is directly responsible for a 78% decrease in the maternal death rate in the region.
Send Hope Not Flowers is dedicated to helping mothers survive childbirth across the developing world.
