We support the work of SurfAid – who work together with communities and local government to prevent mother and child suffering and death in Indonesia.
The latest Indonesian statistics show that every three hours a mother dies in childbirth, while every hour 20 babies die. Half of these babies are less than one month old. In remote areas these figures are worse. SurfAid provide a mix of practical support, education and health promotion that aims to change poor health behaviours into positive behaviours. Simple basic stuff, really, and with huge effects!
