Zonta Birthing Kits
Zonta Birthing Kits provide for a clean and safe birthing environment for women without access to professional medical care.
The lives of many women and babies in third world countries have been saved through this project.
The kits are basic with 6 items. A plastic sheet, soap, 2 gloves, sterile scalpel blade, 3 cords and 5 gauze squares.
These items are assembled into a small bag at an annual Assembly Day.
The birthing kit addresses the 7 cleans needed for a safe delivery.
Clean birth site, clean hands, clean ties, clean cut, clean eyes, clean umbilical cord and clean perineum.
The club is aiming to complete our 40,000th kit in 2020 Celebrating our 40th Birthday!
