GHC Clean Birth Kit (CBK) Program

The Clean Birth Kit (CBK) Program allows Global Health Charities to provide training and supplies to childbirth staff in order to improve the safety of both mother and child during the birthing process. Volunteers are able to host or attend a CBK Event, during which, individuals package each CBK to ready them for shipment to remote places in need. 

Why Support Global Health Charities?

One Kit Can Save TWO Lives: Mother & Baby

 

Consider these statistics:

  • 4 million infants die each year 

  • Over 287,000 mothers die each year giving birth

  • Nine out of 10 of these deaths are preventable

  • 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries

  • A women’s lifetime risk of maternal death is 1 in 3,700 in a developed country, versus 1 in 160 in underdeveloped countries.

 

There are many factors involved, but one of the main causes of high neonatal and maternal mortality is infection. GHC Clean Birth Kits contain clean birthing supplies for women and babies giving birth in under-resourced countries, many of whom deliver at home due to distance, poverty, and/or cultural norms. 

GHC’s Clean Birth Kits ensure that both mother and baby have a clean birth, whether birthing alone at home, at home with a traditional birth attendant (TBA), or in a clinic with a midwife or TBA.

Each Kit Includes:

  • One 2 oz. bar of wrapped soap

  • Two pairs of disposable gloves

  • Four squares of gauze

  • Antiseptic wipes

  • One single-edged razor blade with cardboard safety cover

  • One cord clamp

  • One plastic sheet (3’ x 3’)

  • One infant hat

  • One 30” x 30” receiving blanket

  • One birth pictorial

Your donation can save lives! $10 includes a Clean Birth Kit, plus transport expenses from U.S. to remote global community, and then directly into the hands of the mother or birth attendant/midwife.

 

  • $10 provides one kit

  • $30 provides three kits

  • $60 provides six kits

  • $120 provides 12 kits

  • $240 provides 24 kits
