Support Girish's climb to build a maternity hospital in Kenya
In developing countries, complications are common in the late stages of pregnancy, delivery, and the first hours after birth. Every year, one million children die on the same day they are born – mostly from preventable causes.
The reasons are numerous and complex, spanning from individual to systemic factors. Many do not have the money, time, or knowledge they need to care for themselves and their families. In rural areas, health facilities are poorly-equipped, understaffed, or simply do not exist at all. There is a lack of investment in the foundations of strong health systems: infrastructure, human resources, policy, and research. Every country has its own unique challenges, but many are common across the developing world… and often disproportionately affect women and children.
