Mother’s Day Gift to Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies

Tragically, more than 1500 mothers and 5000 newborns die each year from preventable causes in PNG.

This year, instead of the usual flowers and chocolates, give your mum a hug and tell her you have donated to Burnet’s HMHB program to help save mums and newborns in PNG. Bring a smile to a mum’s face.

By Mother’s Day next year, another 1500 young mums will have died in PNG, more than 5,000 babies won’t have lived past the first month, and another 7,000 children would have perished before they reached their 5th birthday.

Help us stop this appalling loss of lives by donating today.

Find out more about our inspiring Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies program today.
