As corporate citizens, we all play a major role in creating a sustainable future for the communities we serve. For us, a decline in maternal deaths through the training of midwives will create a better Kenya.
In partnership with AMREF – ‘Stand Up for African Mothers’ initiative, last year we raised Ksh 30 million, which trained 1500 Kenyan midwives. The overwhelming support and awareness created is testament that we are collectively committed to giving African children the right to grow up with their mothers.
As part of this continued partnership, we will host The Chase Group Foundation Walk 2015 on the 28th March 2015 from 8:00am at Ngong Road Forest Sanctuary. We aim to raise more funds to train new midwives in rural Kenya, which will reduce maternal mortality by improving access to pre-natal care. This is our contribution to the Nation’s journey towards meeting Millennium Development Goal 5 concerning maternal health.
- Over 162,000 mothers die every year due to a lack of simple medical care.
- 1 in 39 African women run the risk of dying from pregnancy or childbirth related risk.
- Over 80% of these deaths are as a result of complications that could be taken care of in facilities with basic emergency obstetric care services.
- One midwife can look after 500 mothers and safely deliver 100 babies annually.
We understand that we cannot do it on our own and that is why we are calling on you to help us raise funds towards this cause through;
- Taking up a corporate sponsorship package (See attached document highlighting different packages).
- Purchasing our merchandise items (Attached document highlights the items).
- Joining us to spread the message and create awareness about the cause.
- Volunteering your services and expertise to achieve our objectives.
- Walking alongside us to Save A Mum.
By sponsoring and partnering with us, you impact and influence the plight of the African mother. You will in return, receive acknowledgement and recognition as a champion of the “Stand Up for African Mothers” initiative and help fight against maternal mortality not only in Kenya but across Africa.
