Support the Cuso CAN Fund and help save the lives of moms and babies around the world.
Watch how Canadian volunteers are making a difference at Pawe Hospital in Ethiopia
Your monthly gifts will be matched ten times, providing even more women and children with life-saving health care.
The maternity ward at Pawe Hospital is nothing like maternity wards in Canada. Space, cleanliness and comfort are luxuries that the hospital cannot afford. Health workers do the best they can with what they have, but it’s not always enough to ensure every mother has a safe birth.
At Pawe Hospital, doctors and midwives can offer basic care, but they don’t always have the training to prevent or treat complications like hemorrhaging and infection.
That means moms and babies are far more likely to lose their lives, or suffer from serious injury or illness.
But with more training and better hospital practices, health workers in Pawe can recognize danger signs earlier, treat them faster, and help more moms deliver their babies safely.
Your monthly support will send Canadian volunteers with medical expertise to improve the skills of health workers in developing countries like Ethiopia.
The Cuso CAN Fund was established to give you the chance to support Cuso International’s high priority maternal and child health projects in Ethiopia, Benin, Tanzania, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
