The have way mark, or near enough, for those counting carefully!
Every day approximately 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries.
Give 20p for every pregnant woman you know who received a decent standard of medical care in the Last year.
Every women I know, or every woman I know of... I seem to be turning into a semantic nightmare this year! I have one friend in England who gave birth in the last year, so that bit is easy. There are currently two women who regularly share in the life of the Gathering Place who are pregnant, two who come occasionally with a babies I think are under a year old , and at a slightly further remove at least one other newish grandchild. But then there's the Toddler group which has lots of bumps and babies... should I count them in or not? Oh decisions, decisions... I think I'll keep it simple and opt for £1!
