Birthing Kit Packing Day
5 December 2012
Each year an estimated 500,000 new mothers die in developing countries due to complications during childbirth. Infection is a major contributor to these frightening mortality rates. Birthing Kits contain the essentials for creating a hygienic birthing environment for new mothers, reducing the risk of infection and potentially saving many thousands of lives.
On Wednesday 5 December, Sydney Nursing School staff, students and alumni will be holding a Birthing Kit Packing Day.
We are calling for volunteers to help us pack 5000 kits which will be sent to help new mothers in Africa.
Time: 8.45am - 1.00pm
