I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Kangu. All opinions are mine.
Getting pregnant can be the most dangerous thing a woman does in some countries. Each day, 800 women and 8,000 newborns die because they lack access to basic healthcare services, such as trained professionals and clean facilities. That’s nearly 300,000 every year! But it doesn’t have to be like this, and it’s so simple for you to help.
Kangu, a non-profit organization, is taking a different approach to a pregnant woman’s healthcare by creating a crowdfunding platform to support live-saving health services. Kangu recognizes that 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries where they don’t have the necessary resources to have safe births.
By crowdfunding, every small donation a person makes gets bundled with other small donations to fund a pregnant woman in need. By jointly raising money, Kangu can offer “safe birth” services before, during and after delivery that have been proven to save the lives of mothers and their newborn babies.
Here’s how simple it is!
- Meet actual pregnant women from around the world on Kangu’s website.
- Donate $10 or more to a specific pregnant woman to support a safe birth for both the mother and child.
- Receive an update from on-the-ground medical partners after the birth. What a wonderful way to know you’ve made a difference!
What I find amazing about this organization is that as a patron, you actually get to see the specific person or people you are helping. Your donation doesn’t go into the void but rather to a woman with a story, who wants adequate healthcare to ensure she and her baby have a safe birth.
Since Kangu’s inception in Spring 2013, the organization has funded over 250 safe births from nearly 1,000 donations. Kangu has also amassed a community of 2,000 users, 55% of which are repeat donors. The services Kangu was able to provide by vetted local medical partners are proven to reduce maternal and newborn deaths by up to 80%.
