A Gift for Your Mother that Blesses Another

Honor Mothers in a Special Way This Year    Like us on Facebook


May we at Zambia Mission Fund suggest a way to give a Mother's Day gift that will give life to a mother and her baby in Zambia?
A gift of $10 will purchase two Clean Delivery Kits (CDKs) for Zambia. We give these CDKs out to expectant mothers during Zambia Medical Mission and throughout the year at the Namwianga Zonal Health Centre (NZHC). 
We target mothers who will not have access to a hospital or rural clinic for delivery.  Since  NZHC started teaching safe motherhood classes, and providing the Clean Delivery Kits, the clinic has not recorded a maternal death in the area it serves.

Enter the names of the mother or mothers you wish to honor on the last page of the checkout as you enter your credit card or eCheck information.  Your mother will receive a hand-written acknowledgment of the honor and the gift.
Help us Take the FEAR Out of an Expectant Mother's Life

Each year about 60 million women in developing countries give birth with only the help of an untrained attendant or family member or with no help at all. Many of these deliveries take place at home and often in a small hut in a remote village. The infection rate is high with some 1600 women per day dying from complications associated with pregnancy or childbirth, and infection is a leading cause. 

Child 2
Around 950,000 newborns per year die from infection, according to the World Health Organization. Many of these infections can be avoided when Clean Delivery Kits (CDKs) are used.

Simple Life-Saving Items In a Time of Need


Our kit includes the following:

Women and Children

  • Bar of soap and wash cloth
  • Square yard of plastic sheet
  • Razor blade (single edge)
  • String for umbilical cord
  • Sealed bag for packaging
  • Baby blanket
  • Infant sleeper or onesie
  • Candle (purchased in Zambia)
  • Matches
  • Two pairs disposable gloves
Last year during the medical mission, we gave out over 800 CDKs.   This year 
our goal is 1,000 kits 
so that no mom-to-be will go back to her hut without having these essentials for her hut delivery.



Thank you for your kindness in allowing us to present this need to you.
Have a blessed day.
