our projects

Maternal Health in Afghanistan

Kabul, Afghanistan

Afghanistan has one of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the world. In response, we are dedicated to building maternity hospitals, and equipping them with the latest medical equipment to save the lives of mothers and infants. With funding from ConnectHer, we can furnish a new 20-bed maternity ward.
