Every 90 seconds a woman dies of complications from pregnancy or childbirth. It is also estimated that 385,000 women die each year in childbirth around the world. Many of these deaths can be prevented for as little as $3, less than a cup of coffee. The kits include a plastic sheet, soap, plastic gloves, sterile blade, three cords and five gauze squares and only cost $3 each. The kits provide the seven cleans for childbirth in third world countries - a clean birth site, clean hands, clean ties, clean cut, clean eyes, clean umbilical cord and clean perineum.
