Are you able to help my friend Teresa, and the women of Arusha, Tanzania? Teresa has long held a dream of working with women and babies, where she can be of most use. Teresa will be volunteering in Tanzania in May 2019, currently the maternal mortality rate is 578 deaths per 100,000. The infant mortality rate is 57.57 per 1000 births.
These tragic deaths can can be avoided by prenatal care, proper care during childbirth and postnatal period, and of course the proper equipment to save lives. We all should be alarmed and concerned that women and babies are dying at this rate. Teresa along with volunteering would love to be able to take with her medical and life saving equipment.
Items such as maternity pads, blueys ( underpads), iv sets, cannulas, iv solutions, blood drawing equipment, gauze, sutures, baby swaddles.
And then larger equipment, bassinets, sheets ( babies and mums), ultrasound machines, Doppler’s, blood pressure monitors, blood sugar monitors, iv needles, newborn nappies, breast pumps,milk storage bottles, dressings, prenatal vitamins. Resuscitation equipment.
Please help Teresa and the women and babies of Tanzania.
