Dear Green Bay Rotarian,
This is the day we celebrate all the mother’s in the world! And so, too, does Rotary. The Rotary Foundation reaches mothers and children in need by providing communities with help and training so that mother’s can take ownership in their own maternal and infant health care.
But much still needs to be done. An article in this morning’s New York Times, noted that, if this is an average day, 830 women around the globe will die from pregnancy or childbirth. That is one woman dying every two minutes. The article went on to state that around the world, getting pregnant is about the most dangerous thing a woman can do. In the U.S. an average of two women die in childbirth each day. And that number is rising. According to statistics from the Washington Post, “maternal deaths related to childbirth in the United States are nearly at the highest rate in a quarter century, and a woman giving birth in America is now more likely to die than a woman giving birth in China.”
The Rotary Foundation, through its Mother and Child Health Area of Focus improves the lives of mothers and their children by:
- Reducing the mortality rate for children under the age of five
- Reducing he maternal mortality rate
- Improving access to essential medical services and trained health care providers for mothers and their children
- Supporting studies related to maternal and child health
Let us be mindful of areas in our Green Bay Community where our Rotary Club can make a difference in the health and well-being our community’s mothers.
