Birthing Kits      



More than 500,000 women die annually in childbirth, 99% of these in developing countries.

For every woman who dies in childbirth probably 30 incur injuries and infections.

A Zonta Birthing Kit, costing less than the price of a cup of coffee to produce,

consists of a sheet of plastic, a piece of soap, 1 pair of latex gloves, 3 pieces of cord,
1 scalpel blade and some gauze squares,

all contained in a small plastic press-seal bag.
