Since Saturday’s earthquake struck Nepal, women first responders have been hard at work.
MADRE’s on-the-ground partners at the women’s group WOREC run a network of local activists. They are bringing emergency aid to women and families in the most hard-to-reach areas, including pregnant women and mothers with newborns.
Today, our partners are distributing 10,000 health kits for pregnant women and mothers with newborns. Kits include food, baby clothes, blankets, diapers, basic hygiene supplies for mothers and more.
