Could you forgo a $5 coffee to potentially save the life
of a mother and baby in a third world country?
The Zonta Club of Geelong are calling on the community
to support our Birthing Kit project again this year and help
raise the $5000 we need to make 1000 birthing kits.
These small kits, being assembled in the photo, consist of
a large sheet of plastic, gauze, soap, rubber gloves, string
and a sterilised scalpel packed in a zip lock bag.
The kits cost $5 each to assemble and ship via the Birthing Kit Foundation to women
in countries less fortunate than ours who have no hospitals or birthing facilities for
The little kits provide a clean sterile package that helps protect the mother and baby
from infections and bacteria like tetanus.
