Zonta Birthing Kit Assembly Day
16 Graham St
South Brisbane QLD 4101
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE 12TH ANNUAL ZONTA BIRTHING KITS PROJECT! Every 2 minutes, a woman dies of complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. The birthing kit holds supplies to meet the seven basic requirements for a clean birth and potentially saves the life of a mother and baby in a rural or remote community.This year we will be assembling 13,000 kits which will be distributed to expectant mothers in Papua New Guinea and across Africa.
ABOUT THE PROJECT Since its involvement began in 2006, the Zonta Brisbane Breakfast Club has facilitated the delivery of 87,000 birthing kits to communities in Papua New Guinea, Madagascar, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria and Somalia. This contribution represents just a fraction of that delivered globally by the Birthing Kit Project, which at the end of December 2016, the Birthing Kit Foundation (Australia) had coordinated the distribution of 1.58 million kits.
