Gift of Hope: $15
Nine months iron supplementation during pregnancy for an Afar woman.
Your donation will fund nine months worth of iron supplementation for a pregnant woman in the Afar region of Ethiopia.
Over one third of Afar women are anaemic during pregnancy. Severe anemia during pregnancy increases the mothers’ risk of premature birth, having a low birth weight baby or postpartum depression.
Low maternal iron levels can also affect cognitive development of the infant and is linked to increases in disease, ill-health and foetal death.
Thank you for your generous gift to give hope to a pregnant woman and her child.
