A woman’s lifetime risk of maternal death is only 1 in 7,300 in
developed countries. In Sub-Saharan Africa, it is a staggering 1 in 22.
24 women die per 100,000 live births in Europe, compared to 1,000 women per 100,000 live births in Sub-Saharan Africa.
…And because it’s the right thing to do
Maternal and Reproductive health are not “women’s issues”. In most parts of the world, the well-being of entire families, including men, depends heavily on healthy women and mothers. No woman should risk her life, health, or the well-being of her baby because she lacks access to basic reproductive and maternal health care.

What We Do
Pregnancy and childbirth are often a cruel experience for
poor women and girls. What should be one of the most joyful
events in a woman’s life - Giving Birth - often turns into a life or death situation.
Close to 75 % of women and girls who die in childbirth would be alive if they had access to basic health interventions that either prevent pregnancy or birth complications. Congo Lotus Care wants to provide quality, lifesaving healthcare to women and girls. Imagine nearly 250,000 mothers, sisters, aunts, teenagers dying needlessly every year. You can help us raise awareness, funds, or both. Get involved, help one of them.
Where We Do It
You might ask, why the Democratic Republic of Congo?
First, thefounderof the NGO has a personal connection to this
Sub-Saharan country. Second, the D.R. Congo has undergone a serious
deterioration of its infrastructure over the last 15 years because of multiple wars. Hospitals, clinics, and health services delivery systems do not offer adequate support to the population.
Over 500,000 women and girls die every year from pregnancy related issues. Essentially, one girl or woman dies every minute.
Almost 50% of those 500,000 deaths happen in Sub-Saharan Africa. These deaths are needless and preventable. Congo Lotus Care works to stop them in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We need $95,000 to open our first clinic.
