Will you help us? The Big Give Christmas Challenge will double your donation for 3 days only.  29 November-2 December

Ammalife is co-funding the team working to save the lives of mothers and their babies who develop sepsis in some of the poorest parts of our world. Thankfully, the UK has led the world in developing essential treatments and tests within the first hour after sepsis is suspected.  (This care bundle is called the Sepsis 6 – 3 treatments + 3 tests) Time is critical and now, all over the world where there are well resourced clinics, deaths from sepsis have been halved.

Sadly this is rarely the case for mothers and newborns in most of sub-Saharan Africa. That’s why the team from the University of Birmingham/Birmingham Women’s Hospital are working closely with health professionals in Malawi to devise a package of treatments and tests which can be used in that first hour even when the pharmacy hasn’t got the drugs or there’s no lab for a blood test. They’re working to find practical, life saving solutions for low-income settings.

Will you help us this Christmas?

Our Charity Champions from the Big Give Christmas Challenge will give us £2250 if we can raise a matching sum from our supporters in 3 days between 29 November-2 December only. Every pound you donate during the Christmas Challenge will be matched by the Reed Foundation and our other key donors.

Please –  help us reach our target. Your donation will be doubled so you can do twice the good. Quite literally, £10 could prevent a mother dying of sepsis. Just click here.
