Meet Hellen, an expectant 20-year-old mother from Kenya. She lives with her husband and their first child. Hellen is a gold miner and her husband has a small farm with cows and chickens, proceeds of which support their daily family needs and are put in savings for the children’s school fees. Even with all of their hard work, Hellen and her husband cannot afford the extra cost of health services for her pregnancy.
Hellen is having a difficult pregnancy. She is experiencing back pain, severe headaches, and frequent lower abdominal pain. “I hope to continue with my usual duties and to be an accountable parent for my children,” says Hellen.
For $215, we can give Hellen the support she needs to ensure the safe delivery of her second baby. She will receive expert care in a health facility during delivery and rapid access to advanced care in case of any complications. Let’s help Hellen have a safe and successful delivery!
