I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the Cigna Foundation, in partnership with Samahope. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
There are women in this world who lost their children and often their lives simply because they don’t have sterile tools for their deliveries. This causes preventable life-threatening complications that are frequently fatal. Simply because of a lack of sterile tools.
In fact, every 2 minutes a woman dies from preventable causes related to pregnancy and birth.
If you have given birth, think back to your own pregnancies and deliveries. Imagine if you faced the loss of your child simply due to the conditions in which they were born.
In our modern world, how can we let this happen?
Thankfully there is an organization called Samahope that aims to help provide the necessary care for people in need in order to save lives.
Samahope works with heroic doctors across the globe who treat women and children suffering from debilitating, yet treatable health conditions. But they are understaffed and poorly equipped because they just don’t have the budgets needed to provide adequate healthcare.
Samahope strives to help amplify these doctor’s power to heal. But they can’t do it alone.
With Samahope, anyone can change a life.
For only $5.
A $5 donation to Samahope can help provide a safe delivery and protect the lives of the mother and the child. Just $5 helps protect 2 lives by funding a birth kit that includes sterile tools to help ensure both mother and child are protected against life-threatening complications – complications that are easily preventable.
The Cigna Foundation is a philanthropic group with a mission of providing a better life for individuals and communities across the globe. Cigna is supporting Samahope because of their focus on helping people overcome barriers to their health and well-being no matter what their ethnicity, race, gender, age, geography or economics. This year Signa Foundation provided Samahope with a World of Difference grant to help train local nurses and fund doctors in India to provide treatment and surgery for people in need.
The 10,000 Lives Campaign
Only $5 can save 2 lives, but imagine what only $1,000 can do. It can save 10,000 lives – 5,000 moms and 5,000 babies. The mission of the 10,000 Lives Campaign is to help 5,000 women delivery their babies safely, and you can help!
What do you spend $5 on that you can do without today? Is it a store-bought coffee? Cosmetics you don’t really need? A magazine subscription? Something else?
