Because no woman should die giving life

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Due to the current climate surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have shifted our efforts to support the communities that we serve. Specifically, we are mobilizing our efforts to support the women through our mPOWHER program in NYC and partnership with Northern Manhattan Perinatal Partnership (NMPP). 

To continue to support the women during these dire times, we are working closely with the community health workers to provide essential items that are in need. We have identified four critical items needed from all families and will be working tirelessly to deliver them. These include formula, baby wipes, diapers, and food. 

If you would like to donate for the women who are unable to access these essential items, please go to our New York City Page to make a direct donation.

We are very excited to announce an anonymous donor will match every dollar you donate up to $10,000 through the end of May! 

We hope you will join us in assisting these women during these unfortunate times. 

Women in developing nations are 43 times more likely to die during childbirth.

The Problem

On average, one woman or girl dies due to complications from childbirth every two minutes. 75% of these deaths could be prevented with access to low-cost basic sexual and reproductive healthcare.
