Goal: 20,000 Progress: 8,867
Sponsored by: The Hunger Site

While here in America we have excellent medical care when it comes to childbirth, women in third-world countries such as Afghanistan often don't have access to maternal care of any kind. Pregnancy can bring on complications that these women aren't properly prepared to address due to the lack of prenatal healthcare.

Providing Afghan women with midwife training and education could mean the preservation of more lives— both mothers and children. Sign the petition below asking Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization, to lend her support to empowering Afghan women with the medical training that could save lives.

Dear Director-General Margaret Chan,

Pregnancy and childbirth are supposed to be the most joyful and rewarding experiences of a woman's life, yet countless women in Afghanistan face just the opposite type of situation during pregnancy. Because of the poor health conditions in the region, women suffer horribly when it comes to prenatal care.

We can help Afghan women sustain peaceful pregnancies and bear healthy children by providing willing citizens with midwife medical training. By empowering women with the skills and knowledge to care for others during pregnancy, we can reduce the need for doctors whose services are needed elsewhere while still providing pregnant women with quality treatment. In doing this we can also ensure that less women will experience complications and death during childbirth.

Please work toward educating Afghan women in midwife care so that more of them have the chance to survive and prosper during and after childbirth.

Thank you.
