10% of every purchase will go directly to funding the distribution of clean birthing kits and their journey to birthing attendants in developing countries. This means access to a safer, clean birth for mamas across the world.
Nourish is proud to partner with Kit International previously known Birthing Kit Foundation Australia. No woman should die while giving life. Over 300,000 women die annually from pregnancy or childbirth-related complications. The majority of these are in developing countries. Kit International is an organisation dedicated to improving the conditions for women all over the world by providing clean Birthing Kits. The simple contents provide the resources to reduce infection and fatalities.
