UNFPA: Join Ashley Judd to save the lives of Rohingya mothers
Over half a million Rohingya refugees currently live in Kutupalong, Bangladesh, the site of one of the largest and most overcrowded refugee camps in the world. Many are women and girls who have suffered unspeakable trauma and violence on their journey to safety. Among them are over 64,000 currently pregnant women who urgently need maternal health care that could save their lives and that of their babies. With the monsoon season underway, their need is more urgent than ever. UNFPA is the lead agency on the ground providing life-saving services to ensure every childbirth is safe. But shortages of supplies and trained midwives continue to put the lives of mothers and their children at risk. You can help deliver vital maternal health services now and ensure no mother dies while giving life. Your donation of just $25 provides the supplies needed for five women to deliver their babies safely. Every tax-deductible donation will be matched dollar for dollar to help us reach more women and their children before it’s too late.
