Our most ambitious campaign yet – The Big Give Christmas Challenge is now LIVE – one donation, twice the impact. We have until noon on Tuesday 5 December to reach our target.

We need to raise £6500 to fund FAST-M & tackle life threatening sepsis in childbirth. If we can raise £3250 online in the next few days, our Charity Champions at the Reed Foundation will make sure that all your donations are doubled and we’ll hit our target. We’re almost there – at Sunday lunchtime we’re just £194 short.

What’s FAST-M?

It’s a ‘bundle’ of life saving interventions devised by cinicians in Malawi and our team from the University of Birmingham to speedily treat sepsis in new mothers. Fluids, Antibiotics, finding the Source of infection, Transport to skilled care & Monitoring of mother and baby until they’re out of danger. We’re working with Dowa, Mitundu and Kabulu Hospitals and their 12 satelite clinics to test this right now. We can’t carry on without your help.

Listen to Dr Amie Wilson explain why this matters on BBC Radio WM’s Sunny and Shay Show. Amie’s on air 1:08:58 minutes into the show.

Then send £10 or whatever you can to The Big Give Christmas Challenge

Thank You.
