Would you walk miles through fields and over dirt roads whilst in labour to reach a clinic? Some women have no choice.

Ambu-Bike/Maternity Project

In Malawi, 70% of pregnant women face issues in accessing maternal health services, whilst many women have to walk up to 9km to a clinic, leading to birthing complications and maternal deaths.

Your donations will pay for Ambu-bike materials and will oversee the training of Ambu-bike cyclists in a bid to increase local access to maternity clinics, with the aim of reducing maternal deaths, as well as increasing the uptake of mother and baby health checks. Crucially, your donations will also support the rebuilding of strategically placed maternal clinics in rural areas that either have poorly functioning maternity clinics, or nothing at all. This will not only increase antenatal, postnatal and neonatal screening which will reduce complications during and after pregnancy, but also save lives during labour.
