Mama Kits save lives!

Save the life of a mother giving birth in a remote village

MAY


2022

It’s May—a month to thank God for our moms! Mothers give us life, love, and the courage to face our fears.

But in Uganda, becoming a mother can be scary. In many cases, it can be deadly!

Nearly one out of 50 expecting moms in Uganda will die from pregnancy-related complications, most often because they give birth at home without sanitary equipment.

With stats like these, it’s easy to understand why Charles and Desire, a young couple who were excited to start their life together, felt frightened when Desire got pregnant.

Would you like to help reduce the fear of expecting parents like Desire and Charles?

Then keep reading!

In Uganda, women must bring their own birthing supplies to the hospital with them. Hospitals in developing nations often don’t have enough medical supplies for all their patients and will turn away women in labor if they do not bring their own supplies.

Charles and Desire, who both came from very poor families, barely had enough money for food and shelter. How could they possibly afford their own birthing supplies?

In Desire’s words: “I was terrified because we had no stable means of income. I worried about where to get money for birth requirements and hospital bills.”

But you can provide moms in Uganda with the birthing supplies they so desperately need with Mama Kits!

In Uganda, nearly one out of 50 expecting moms will die from pregnancy-related complications.

When a Bright Hope partner church invited Desire to a maternal health training meeting, she agreed! And after she and Charles attended all the meetings, they received a Mama Kit!

Desire and Charles took their Mama Kit with them to the hospital and they had all the supplies they needed for the safe birth of their daughter!


“We got more than we expected from that Mama Kit! Everyone at the Health Center respected us for being so ready and organized for our baby,” Charles said. 


For only $50, you can give peace of mind to an expectant mom in Uganda! 

Each Mama Kit contains all the supplies necessary for a safe delivery, including:

  • two sets of receiving blankets
  • baby hats
  • socks
  • hand gloves
  • warm clothing
  • onesies
  • a mosquito net
  • baby soap
  • baby oil
  • a carrying bag (like a diaper bag)
  • plastic sheets
  • surgical gloves
  • cotton
  • gauze
  • a cord band ligature
  • sterile razor blades
  • a child health and immunization card

Give a Mama Kit in honor of a mother and download this bookmark to let her know.


Charles kept on smiling to express his gratitude: “We chose to call our daughter Gift because through her, God has shown His love to us.”


As you celebrate Mother’s Day this month, please remember the pregnant women in Uganda who fear for their lives and the lives of their unborn children. Your gift will give them Hope, and enable Bright Hope to meet other urgent needs around the world.
