    Reaching even the furthest moms in need

    Day 286

    More for Mamas

    Bidi Bidi Refugee Settlement is vast – it can take hours and hours to drive from one point to another. For expectant mothers, this can be a little scary. When you go into labor, the last thing you want is for the nearest safe delivery center to be miles away. Plus, most of them get to those centers on foot.

    Going into labor can happen unexpectedly. But we want these mothers to give birth safely, no matter where they are. Our staff member Maggie had an idea…let’s get Mama Kits to as many women who are the furthest afield.

    Mama Kits hold all the supplies you need to have a baby outside of the hospital. Having a baby without a doctor is not ideal, but having the right supplies makes the delivery much safer. Inside the kits these moms will find things like gloves, hygienic and sterilizing equipment, and everything else you could need.

    Selena – one of the mothers who received the Mama Kits – told us how thankful she is because her baby is due in 15 days. “Sometimes we are all alone and so when we are given this we feel good. If an emergency comes, we will be ok,” she said. “Even this small gift helps us to feel free.”

    Changemakers 365 is all about a small project playing a big role in helping someone feel empowered. We’re so glad these Mama Kits can do just that!

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
