Save the Kula Babies – Papua New Guinea

RAWCS Project 18-2009-10

Summary:To provide funding for health, education, Family Planning training, disability services, medical education and disability equipment in PNG.
Challenge:Delivering life changing and life-saving programs in rural coastal communities in Papua New Guinea.
Solution:Help save babies from abandonment by their families through offering family planning information and implants which allow mothers to plan around the size of their families. Delivering “safe birth kits” so that women are not having their children born on a dirt floor.
Long term impact:The biggest killer is childbirth. They lose five women per day in Papua New Guinea and it is needless. Cervical cancer is the next biggest killer and we need help and money for a program to vaccinate against cervical cancer. Upskilling local health workers and training communities will save lives.
